Default Linear Expansion Of Material (Temperature)

(This is for Jerry B.)

To calculate the thermal expansion of materials. Jerry's fence is extruded aluminum (Incra LS-TS Fence)...
Aluminum's linear expansion coefficient is 0.00023.
Wood, fir: 0.000021
Wood, parallel to grain: .000017
Wood, across (perpendicular) to grain: 0.00017
Wood, pine: 0.000028
