Restrained Anchored Pipe Stress formula

\(\large{ S = E \; \alpha \; \Delta T   }\)   

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ S }\) = temperature change stress \(\large{F}\) \(\large{C}\)
\(\large{ E }\) = short term elastic modulus \(\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}\) \(\large{Pa}\)
\(\large{ \alpha }\) = thermal expansion coefficient \(\large{\frac{in}{in\;F}}\) \(\large{\frac{mm}{mm\;C}}\)
\(\large{ \Delta T }\) = temperature differential \(\large{F}\) \(\large{C}\)
