English term or phrase: the appropriately conservative choice
hello

I have got a question and i would like some of you solve it.

the sentences is the appropriately conservative choice

the hole paragraph is as follows:

The choice of value (from manufacturer’s literature) of EL
will depend on the estimated duration of the application of the load, P, in relation to the design life of the structure. For example, if the total duration of the load, P, is estimated to be 50 years, either continuously applied, or the sum of intermittent periods of loading, the appropriately conservative choice of value for EL will be that given for 50 years of continuous loading
at the maximum ground or fluid temperature expected to be reached over the life of the structure.


thanks for your help

"opción conservadora", en el entendido de que el calculista opta por cubrirse al máximo.
