This is the first volume in 25 years to address the important safety problems concerning the handling of cryogenic fluids. Authors Frederick J. Edeskuty and Walter F. Stewart propose solutions to these problems and discuss the vital concerns that have arisen since the early 1970s particularly large scale handling. The authors provide tables and descriptions of existing codes and standards, describe the thermal behavior of cryogenic fluids, and discuss cool-down problems of large scale cyrogenic systems.
