Pipe Drafting and Design, Fourth Edition is a tried and trusted guide to the terminology, drafting methods, and applications of pipes, fittings, flanges, valves, and more. Those new to this subject will find no better introduction on the topic, with easy step-by-step instructions, exercises, review questions, hundreds of clear illustrations, explanations of drawing techniques, methodology and symbology for piping and instrumentation diagrams, piping arrangement drawings and elevations, and piping isometric drawings. This fully updated and expanded new edition also explains procedures for building 3D models and gives examples of field-scale projects showing flow diagrams and piping arrangement drawings in the real world. The latest relevant standards and codes are also addressed, making this a valuable and complete reference for experienced engineers, too.
