Boilers for Power and Process by Kumar Rayaprolu
It is a sensible desk e book on water tube boilers for practising engineers and a reference e book for college students of warmth and energy. It has been written by an skilled boiler skilled with an all-round techno industrial background of practically 4 a long time. Let me hasten to dispel a attainable interpretation of a “sensible e book” as a e book coping with solely nuts and bolts.
Quite the opposite, this e book delves into the theoretical facets required for a practising boiler engineer. It tries to recapitulate and construct on the forgotten fundamentals of a busy energy engineer, offering the next stage of understanding and a wider publicity to varied fashionable boiler and firing applied sciences.
This e book, after offering a short (however deep) theoretical background of scientific subjects concerned in boiler expertise (particularly, warmth switch, fluid circulate, combustion, fuels, water, and supplies) goes on to explain the totally different up to date development particulars and thereafter elaborates on the varied industrial and utility boilers based mostly on the totally different combustion techniques.
Profusely illustrated with design and sensible information, it’s positioned as a desk e book for any boiler engineer, and is supposed to be consulted each now and then. Reader friendliness is most important for a technical e book that covers numerous floor. There may be numerous design information offered on this e book by means of charts, graphs, tips, and comparisons, that are wanted by a reader.
To make referencing straightforward, such information are collated and offered as lists of references and helpful information within the entrance matter and appendices that positively add to the utility of this e book for rookies in addition to the skilled. They’re
• A set of steadily wanted course of calculations of a boiler.
• Glossary offering prepared definitions to a lot of generally used (or misused) boiler phrases.
This e book is written with the next folks in thoughts:
• Consultants who require a broad perspective and a peripheral, however correct, understanding to have the ability to specify and engineer a boiler plant, each at bid and detailed engineering levels.
• Boiler designers who have to deepen their understanding of the basics and development options.
• Working engineers who have to know the why and how details about numerous boilers that they encounter.
• Venture execution professionals who have to know each the macro and micro particulars of boiler vegetation.
• Graduates and postgraduate college students opting for programs in warmth energy or boiler expertise who want sensible inputs.
In reality, this e book must be of curiosity to any engineer within the discipline of energy who needs to know extra about up to date boilers. Engineers in decrease and center administration ranges and who nonetheless should battle with technicalities and administration points ought to discover this quantity significantly attention-grabbing and immediately helpful.
There has at all times been a niche within the technical literature of boilers, which is a mature and vastly multidisciplinary topic. Largely one has to study boilers, peripherally, as a part of energy vegetation and slowly construct information on that platform in apply. It has been much more difficult to study industrial boilers, as they’ve been the poor cousins of utility boilers in relation to out there information.
Info on boiler elements and subsystems has at all times been manufacturer-specific and scattered and scanty. Books comparable to Steam and Combustion have been of nice assist, however they’re extra like handbooks and are OEM particular. There was no straightforward path to study boilers. It’s this lengthy disjointed course of that’s meant to be short-circuited with this e book by adopting a special route, a special strategy.
