    Pressure Vessel Handbook Author = Eugene F. Megyesy Publisher = Pressure Vessel Handbook Publ., Inc. P.O. Box 35365 Tulsa, OK 74153 Page 18 tells you how to calculate a pressure vessel's wall thickness; page 176 tells how to calculate an API Std. 650 Storage tank wall thickness. The rest of the book is a goldmine for young engineers - especially CHE's involved in vessel design. It also gives all the information you require for supports, nozzles, head design, piping, ladders, platforms, etc.

    INDIAN STANDARD CODE for unfired pressure vessel(IS:2825-1969)can help you in designing stationary unfired pressure vessels, such as chemical reactors,petroleum cracking units,heat exchangers etc..

    During the welding process, the two metal pieces being joined are subject to extreme temperatures and can cause the crystalline structure of the metal to pass through various metallurgical phases. As a result, hardening (and embrittlement) of the metal can occur to varying degrees (usually dependent on carbon content). Heat treatment is designed to reduce the hardness in the heat-affected zone of the metals and increase ductility in these sections. Various pressure vessel codes contain the specifics regarding the procedures for post-weld heat treatment. Heat is usually held for one hour per inch of thickness of the metal. The temperature used is based on the "P-number" of the metals. P-numbers are assigned based on the chemical composition of the metals. Holding temperatures can range from 1100-1350 ?F (593-732 ?C).
