Description

Pipe Drafting and Design, Third Edition provides step-by-step instructions to walk pipe designers, drafters, and students through the creation of piping arrangement and isometric drawings. It includes instructions for the proper drawing of symbols for fittings, flanges, valves, and mechanical equipment. More than 350 illustrations and photographs provide examples and visual instructions. A unique feature is the systematic arrangement of drawings that begins with the layout of the structural foundations of a facility and continues through to the development of a 3-D model. Advanced chapters discuss the use of 3-D software tools from which elevation, section and isometric drawings, and bills of materials are extracted.

Review Text

"Parisher (engineering design graphics, San Jacinto College Central, Texas) and Rhea walk pipe designers, drafters, and students through the steps of creating flow diagrams, piping arrangement, and isometric drawings. They explain the proper drawing of symbols for fittings, flanges, valves, and mechanical equipment found on various types of piping drawings. Unique to their textbook, they say, is the systematic creation and arrangement of drawings that begins with the development of a flow diagram then progresses to the layout of the structural and equipment foundations of a piping facility. They also describe developing a three- dimensional model and the use of three-dimensional software tools from which elevation, section, and isometric drawings and bills of material are extracted. First published in 1995 and revised here from the 2001 edition. Gulf Professional Publishing is an imprint of Elsevier."-- Reference and Research Book News, October 2012
