Encyclopedic Dictionary of Pipeline Integrity

Co-authored by Guy Desjardins, this book is a reference guide to the broad range of topics that fall under the umbrella of "pipeline integrity." It is a compilation of the common terms, concepts, technologies and methods that one is likely to encounter in study, research or practice in this specialized field. The definitions and explanations have been written in language accessible to the non-specialist, involving simplification of often complex concepts, so that the user may get a quick overview of a topic or term and understand perhaps "what questions next to ask."

The relationships among and between many technical concepts are drawn clearly with hundreds of cross-references throughout the book. Profusely illustrated with almost 200 drawings, diagrams, charts and tables, more than 150 literature citations, and including more than 1,000 entries, Encyclopedic Dictionary of Pipeline Integrity will be a practical and oft-used companion to anyone involved in the pipeline industry
