The strain due to thermal effects is T T = where The thermal strain is the same in every direction . is the coefficient of thermal expansion . 2002-2003, L.D. Sturges EM 324 Mechanics of Materials Thermal Strain (cont) total T = + Strains caused by temperature changes and strains caused by stresses are essentially independent.
