Pipe Drafting and Design By Roy A. Parisher & Robert A. Rhea

Pipe Drafting and Design By Roy A. Parisher & Robert A. Rhea

This book provides students with the basic skills they will need to prepare a wide range of piping drawings. It presents a step-by-step approach to the basic fundamentals students will need to begin a successful career in industrial drafting and design. Chapter One gives a quick overview of the many opportunities in drafting and design for those who master the basic skills presented in the following chapters. Then each chapter builds on the preceding one. It is necessary therefore to master the concepts in a given chapter before going on to the next one. Each chapter concludes with exercises and questions designed to help students review and practice the concepts presented in that chapter.

Roy A. Parisher is a professor in the engineering design graphics department at San Jacinto College in Pasadena, Texas, where he has taught for over 20 years.

Robert A. Rhea is a former associate professor of engineering technology at the University of Houston Downtown, Houston, Texas.
