There are two main design considerations for temporary nose:

(i) Maximum sagging moment
The maximum sagging moment at the point of connecting the nose to superstructure occurs when the superstructure is launched far from the pier. It is estimated to occur at about 75% of the span length.

(ii) Maximum bearing pressure at bottom flange of temporary nose
Maximum sagging moment in temporary nose

This question is taken from book named – A Closer Look at Prevailing Civil Engineering Practice – What, Why and How by Vincent T. H. CHU.
