## 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 $$\large{F}$$ $$\large{C}$$
