For a single-ended, resistance loaded amplifier, is there a simple equation that will estimate the THD produced by knowing: that ratio of the plate voltage excursion in one direction vs the opposite. i.e. for a grid input of +1 and -1, the plate voltage may 'reach' from vp-8 to vp+10, respectively, where vp is the DC plate voltage. This is probably easiest to picture by thinking of pentode plate curves where operation may span unequally spaced grid voltage lines. I can see this being applied to other active devices as well by just knowing a loadline..i.e. a JFET. I suppose that, if no one knows, i may be able to come up with something with MATLAB, but i wanted to check first.

In your example EQ = 10, QF = 8 so 2HD = 100 x 2 / 2 x 18 or 5.5%
