There is one for tractive effort (TE is directly proportional to boiler pressure):

TE = cPd(squared)s / D

TE is tractive effort
c is a constant representing losses in pressure and friction; normally 0.85 is used (1 is used when roller bearings are specified)
P is the boiler pressure
d is the piston diameter (bore) (this is squared)
s is the piston stroke
D is the driving wheel diameter
