Pipeline engineering has struggled to develop as a single field of study due to the wide range of industries and government organizations using different types of pipelines for all types of solids, liquids, and gases. This fragmentation has impeded professional development, job mobility, technology transfer, the diffusion of knowledge, and the movement of manpower. No single, authoritative course or book has existed to unite practitioners.In response, Pipeline Engineering covers the essential aspects and types of pipeline engineering in a single volume. This work is divided into two parts. Part I, Pipe Flows, delivers an integrated treatment of all variants of pipe flow including incompressible and compressible, Newtonian and non-Newtonian, slurry and multiphase flows, capsule flows, and pneumatic transport of solids. Part II, Engineering Considerations, summarizes the equipment and methods required for successful planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of pipelines. By addressing the fundamentals of pipeline engineering-concepts, theories, equations, and facts-this groundbreaking text identifies the cornerstones of the discipline, providing engineers with a springboard to success in the field. It is a must-read for all pipeline engineers.show more

Review quote

"Professor Henry Liu's book fills a void in our engineering education and practice. I could see this book being embraced by most professors, students, and practitioners for years to come because of the complete story it tells about pipeline engineering, using design computations, practice problems, and references in each of its chapters." -Dr. Jey K. Jeyapalan, P.E., President Dr. Jeyapalan & Associates, LLC., New Milford, Connecticut, USA "I am much impressed with the excellent coverage of both theories and applications of pipeline engineering in Dr. Henry Liu's book. It is the best and the most important book on pipeline that engineers should read." -Sanai Kosugi, General Manager, Pipeline Engineering, Sumitomo Metal Industries, Ltd., Tokyoshow more
