There are some notes that I made in the \$CLIBS/rwbrook.f on the
transformations..

C
C  PDB files contain anisotropic temperature factors as orthogonal Us.
C The anisotropic temperature factors can be input/output to this
routine
C  as orthogonal or as crystallographic Us.
C
C  Shelx defines Uf to calculate temperature factor as:
C T(aniso_Uf) = exp (-2PI**2 ( (h*ast)**2 Uf_11 + (k*bst)**2 Uf_22 + ...
C                            + 2hk*ast*bst*Uf_12 +..)
C
C   Note:   Uo_ji == Uo_ij and  Uf_ji == Uf_ij.
C
C  [Uo_ij] listed on ANISOU card satisfy  the relationship:
C  [Uo_ij] =   [RFu]-1 [Uf_ij] {[RFu]-1}T   C
C        where [Rfu] is the normalised [Rf] matrix read from the SCALEi
cards.
C        see code.   [ROu] ==  [RFu]-1

C     Generate ROU and RFU for AnisoU stuff
IF (MATRIX) THEN
RFU(4,4) = 1.0
DO I = 1,3
FAC= SQRT(RF(I,1)*RF(I,1) + RF(I,2)*RF(I,2) +
+              RF(I,3)*RF(I,3))
RFU(I,1) = RF(I,1)/FAC
RFU(I,2) = RF(I,2)/FAC
RFU(I,3) = RF(I,3)/FAC
RFU(I,4) = 0.0
RFU(4,I) = 0.0
END DO
C   Get the Inverse of RFU
CALL RBRINV(RFU,ROU)
END IF
C
C#################################################
C T(aniso_Uo) = U(11)*H**2 + U(22)*K**2 + 2*U(12)*H*K + ...
C where H,K,L are orthogonal reciprocal lattice indecies. ( EJD: I
think????)
C
C Biso     = 8*PI**2 (Uo_11 + Uo_22 + Uo_33) / 3.0
C
C   [Uf(symm_j)] = [Symm_j] [Uf] [Symm_j]T
C

Here Uo is the orgthoganal correction and Uf the fractional one.

As long as the orthogonalisation code is the conventional one, you can
get the the same transformations from int Tab, but this works whatever
the SCALEi cards define as the orthogonalisation..
