Temp., °C Temp. Factor ( T )
Sh – SL <= 0.90 S × T Up to 120 ( 248F ) 1.00
Note: This formula does not apply if SL is positive (ie, tension). 150 0.97
180 0.93
200 0.91
230 0.87
Note: For intermediate temperatures, the temperature factor shall
be determined by interpolation.

* Additions SL = u x Sh – Ec x alpha x ( T2 – T1 )
Ec= 2.07E+08 kPa
alpha = 1.21E-05 where
u= 0.3 u = Poisson’s ratio
Ec = modulus of elasticity of steel, MPa
alpha = linear coefficient of thermal expansion, °C–1
T2 = maximum operating temperature, °C
T1 = ambient temperature at time of restraint, °C

S = specified minimum yield strength, MPa
T = temperature factor (see Clause 4.3.3.5.)
