Oil & Gas Application Issues for Gas Turbines & Centrifugal Compressors
How do engineers learn from their mistakes, and perhaps more importantly, how do they avoid repeating past mistakes of others? How do engineers move on from the re-design of gas turbine driven compression systems following an in-service failure to the design of new systems that avoid previous design errors? How can engineers systematically develop the necessary tools and techniques to ensure that new designs do not fail in-service?
Oil & Gas Application Issues for Gas Turbines & Centrifugal Compressors identifies the design related errors associated with past in-service failures, and presents a suite of tools to assist the design engineer in avoiding them in future compression system designs. The editor, Geoff Sheard, and authors Klaus Brun and Rainer Kurz provide real insight into the reality of what engineers must do if they are to avoid repeating the design errors that have resulted in past in-service failures.
Touted by many leaders, both domestically and internationally, this book will appeal to:
Corporate managers accountable for major pipeline projects.
Senior engineers who are trusted to deliver compression system designs that will go into, and operate reliably in-service.
Junior engineers who are tasked with the detail design of compression systems and their associated up and downstream pipework.
Those within the oil and gas community who wish to gain an insight into the design errors that have resulted in previous in-service compression system failures.
Those within the wider engineering community who wish to understand the challenges associated with the compression system design process.
