A Database of Abbreviations
Abbreviations used within Piping Engineering
Dr. M. A. Meshkot
In the field of piping engineering, a lot of abbreviations are used to denote long names, as they are in many other fields. However, in this case I found that many abbreviations were the cause of confusion; because many documents used the same abbreviation to mean different things. By document, I mean drawing, letter, report, specification, standard, code of practice, project document and such like.
In piping engineering, what an abbreviation means depends on the source document. In many cases, projects have their own additional list of abbreviations. Many lists of abbreviations conflict with each other. Therefore I saw the need for a database which contains piping engineering abbreviations, together with the document in which they are defined and the institutes producing those documents.
