Restrained Anchored Pipe Stress

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Pipe

formula

\(S = E \alpha \Delta T   \)

Where:

\(S\) = temperature change stress

\(E\) = short term modulus of elasticity

\(\alpha\) = thermal expansion coefficient

\(\Delta T\) = temperature change

Solve for:

\(E = \frac { S }   { \alpha \Delta T }   \)

\(\alpha = \frac { S }   { E \Delta T }   \)

\(\Delta T = \frac { S }   { E \alpha }   \)
