Equations are for unrestrained change in pipe length due to change in temperature.

Solving for coefficient of thermal expansion.

thermal expansion coefficients (α)

ABS pipe (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) | 5.5 x 10^{-5} |

Aluminum Pipe | 1.3 x 10^{-5} |

Ductile Iron Pipe | 5.8 x 10^{-6} |

HDPE Pipe (High density polyethylene) | 1.2 x 10^{-4} |

PVC Pipe (Polyvinyl Chloride) | 3.0 x 10^{-5} |

Steel Pipe | 6.5 x 10^{-6} |

pipe length change (ΔL) = 0 = 0 inch |

unrestrained pipe length (L _{UR})= 0 = 0 inch |

temperature change in fahrenheit (ΔT) = 0 = 0 |

coefficient of thermal expansion (α) = NOT CALCULATED |
