Kellogg's Design of Piping System has a section that also makes use of the guided cantilever method, but uses it to determine the flexibility of the system and the bending moment at the anchors These equations take the ratios of the leg lengths as well as the ratios of the estimated and allowable stress caused by thermal expansion.
However, as the time frame of the loading increases, we find that in polymer systems the allowable stress that can be applied must be reduced if the part is to function as expected for the life of the product.
The advantages of T91 material over T22 and 304 H are: 1) at a given temperature higher allowable stress can be used for design purpose; 2) the T91 alloy has lower coefficient of expansion in comparison to stainless steels; 3) T91 alloy has potential to improve plant efficiency as the turbine-inlet temperature can be raised; and 4) higher allowable stress of the T91 allows designers to select thinner tube walls.
