home and his clothes with paints and dyes, building better structures, and using fire and tools effectively. The great Chinese, Greek and Roman civilisations all added to the new use of materials, and sculpture and architecture went hand in hand with intellectual and philosophical development. Plato, Euclid, Socrates, Galileo, Leonardo da Vinci, and many others brought society through to the modern age and the start of the Industrial Revolution. More recently another revolution in technology has brought robotics and miniaturisation of components, thus bringing industry more automation and less need for man-operated machinery. During this time engineers have continued to study nature as a model for construction and development. An example is Louis Sullivan with his tension and compression structures based on the Morning Glory flower. Now, the new technique of continuous glass fibre structures, developed by Dr Math (Mathweb) of British Petroleum, go a long way towards helping man to emulate the spider. Developments in rotational moulding, ceramics, glass, controlled crystallisation of metals and many other areas have all introduced new shape possibilities, so now the engineer is more often than not required to be the arbiter of shape and form, rather than being overtly constrained by necessity. It has, however, become possible to distinguish three distinct elements in the design of form which can act as guidelines for the designer, and it is worth studying these in detail.
Talented designer Robin Pickens presents 32 nostalgic drawings to color with markers, colored pencils, watercolors, or gel pens. Discover a modern world, circa the 1950s and 60s, of fresh, engaging illustrations that evoke the clean lines, geometric structures, and understated cool of mid-twentieth century style. Think Eames lounge chairs, Mad Men decor, and Eichler homes. Nestled somewhere within each design are special little icons and symbols for you to find (shown on the back of each page so you know what to look for). Have fun finding these tucked-away friends as you bring each image to life with glorious color! Robin gets you started with the basics of choosing and combining colors for beautiful results. You'll also learn how to color the same image in different ways to create a feeling or set a mood.
Product safety begins with design or formulation whether it is for a complex engineering product or a simple household article. Those who suffer damage from a design defect can win compensation without having to prove negligence. Manufacturers, suppliers and importers can all be responsible for ensuring that their products are safe. To help protect them against prosecution, customer dissatisfaction and commercial loss requires a programme of risk reduction, which begins with the management of design. Design and product development require a balanced approach to the new realities of the legal situation, both for companies and individual designers. Part One reviews the strategy needed to manage design in the fresh legal climate and includes guidance on techniques that can be used. Part Two is a jargon-free guide through the difficult area of international product liability law. It has been entirely rewritten to reflect the many recent changes to influence European law and a designer's personal liability. Part Three brings home vividly the physical, legal and commercial risks of product defects and demonstrates ways in which they could be prevented. There are over 20 real life, fascinating and instructive case histories, many of them new, ranging from exploding office chairs to ro-ro ferries and from washing powder to aircraft. Safer by Design is exceptional in providing management and risk assessment advice, coupled with legal guidance and actual practical lessons.

One of the most important components of the infrastructure is the vast network of pipelines and process piping-literally millions and millions of miles. The term "pipelines" generally refers to the network of pipelines that transport water, sewage, steam, and gaseous and liquid hydrocarbons from sources (e.g., reservoirs, steam plants, oil and gas wells, refineries) to local distribution centers ("transmission pipelines"), and to the network of pipelines that distribute such products to local markets and end users ("distribution" pipelines). The term "process piping" generally refers to the system of pipes that transport process fluids (e.g. industrial gases, fuels, chemicals etc.) around an industrial facility involved in the manufacture of products or in the generation of power. It also is used to describe utility piping systems (e.g., air, steam, water, compressed air, fuels etc.) that are used in, or in support of the industrial process. Also, certain drainage piping--where corrosive or toxic fluids are being transported and severe conditions may be present, or where it is simply outside the scope of plumbing codes--is also sometimes classified as process piping. Some places where process piping is used are obvious, such as chemical and petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries, pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities and pulp & paper plants. However, there are many other not so obvious places where process piping is commonplace, such as semiconductor facilities, automotive and aircraft plants, water treatment operations, waste treatment facilities and many others.This book comprises of 9 course modules, which cover all aspects of piping design in easy to learn format. All topics are introduced to readers with no or limited background on the subject. A multiple choice quiz (total 255 questions) is provided at the end of each module to test the readers' knowledge and enhance learning. The book is very comprehensive and refresher to engineers and designers working in the field of piping in Oil and Gas, Chemical and Industrial plants. It is also very useful to fresh engineers joining industries for improving their knowledge in the field of fluid transportation and pipework.
