Recommendations for Pipe Stress Analysis & Design Books

  1. Jun 28, 2010 #1
    I'm looking to buy a book or three on pipe stress analysis and design. If you work in this field, please make some recommendations for me.

    Thanks,

    More background information would help.

    How about

    The Structural Design of the Cross Section of Buried Vitrified Clay Pipelines

    by J H Walton published by the Clay Pipe Development Association

    or perhaps the Constructional Steelwork Association book

    The Steel Designers Manual

    To be more specific, I'm interested in pipe stress design and analysis as it pertains to ASME B31.9: Building Services Piping. A typical scenario would be combined seismic and thermal analysis of steam lines in hospitals in the state of CA.
