RE: [PipingDesign] EXPANSION STRESS RANGE

Cold Allowable Stress (Sc) = 2 / 3 x Sy(cold), Hence, Syield(cold) = 3 / 2 x Sc
Similarly, Syield(Hot) = 3 / 2 x Sh

Allowable stress = Syield(cold) + Syield(Hot) = 1.5 ( Sc + Sh ) Code seems to have divided above value with Factor of safety to arrive at 1.25 value instead of 1.5 in above equation.

Piping code B31.3 gives value of expansion stress range as follows

                       Sa=f((1.25(Sc +Sh) - Sl)
where Sc ,Sh, Sl,f have their usal meaning as defined in code.   My query is
How the code has decided upon this value of 1.25 ? What is the physical significance of this value?
