Units can cause a lot of errors in FE Analysis…
Video : 60 minutes presentation and curated Q and A
Conversion between unit systems is one of the biggest problems
The errors can be due to simple ‘finger trouble’
They can be very difficult physical units
US (old Imperial) to Metric is probably the most error prone
But there are plenty of other traps in both systems…
In this webinar, I’m going to give examples of unit horrors!
Over 20 questions at the end showed the level of interest.
