Welcome to our companion site for McAllister, E: Pipeline Rules of Thumb Handbook: A Manual of Quick, Accurate Solutions to Everyday Pipeline Engineering Problems, 8th Edition brought to you by Elsevier. For over thirty five years, Pipeline Rules of Thumb Handbook has served as the "go-to" daily reference for solving the most day-to-day pipeline workflow problems. Our new edition includes 30% enhanced chapters on important operational problems such as valve actuators, shorted casings, variable frequency drives and the effect on pump and pumping systems.

For the first time in this new edition, we are taking the content and data off the page and adding a new dimension of practical value for you with online interactive features to accompany some of the handiest and most useful material from the book:

  • Interactive tables that takes data from the book and turns them into a sortable spreadsheet format that gives you the ability to:
    • Perform your own basic filtering functions
    • Show/hide columns of just the data that is important to you
    • Download the table into an Excel spreadsheet for additional use
  • A graph digitizer which pulls a graph from the book and gives you the power to:
    • Plot your own lines on the existing graph
    • See all the relative x/y coordinates of the graph
    • Name and color code your lines for clarity
    • Download for future functionality or presentations
  • A converter calculator performing basic conversions from the book such as:
    • Metric conversions
    • Time
    • Temperature
