One of the best pipe stress books ever written is back in print, for a VERY affordable price. Previously, you had to hope to find someone's used, 50-year-old hardback edition for under $200. If you are looking to understand pipe stress analysis, this is a must-have for your library.
This book contains a method for manual pipe stress analysis which is detailed and comprehensive, so that the reader can understand what is involved in calculating pipe stresses at various points, can work the examples, and find maximum thermal stresses, stresses due to wind load, etc. Calculation methods are compatible with ASME B31 piping codes and parallel the codes very closely.
While it takes a good amount of time and effort to read, understand, and reproduce the results in the book, it's well worth the read and a useful tool to anyone needing to understand pipe stress analysis, whether you have a software license for FEA of piping systems or not. This is one of the few methods out there of obtaining maximum stresses without a computer program. It lends itself very well to calculation in a spreadsheet.
While complex systems are still better done with an FEA analysis package, the methods in this book can afford the user quicker results for simpler systems in many cases.
One of the gold standard books on pipe stress and piping design.
