This chapter presents a brief summary of force predictions from fluid phenomena and behavior, both of which are significant to the formulations and criteria employed in the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel (B&PV) Code. It focuses on the nature of fluid forces imposed on vessels and piping systems from the standpoint of designers, who need guidelines for both the design and operational recommendations of fluid transport systems.
