Global Units in Acusolve-reg

Recommended Posts

AcuConsole is flexible with unit settings and you can see the units next to input values. However AcuConsole will always write out .INP file with the values in MKS (Meter, Kilogram, Seconds).  Hence the outputs from AcuSolve would also be in MKS.


In general, I would recommend to use MKS system, especially if there is going to be any interaction with other solvers (e.g. FSI, cosimulation with MotionSolve,etc).

AcuSolve itself (the solver) has no concepts of units.  The mesh (nodal coordinates) and the values in the input file need to represent a consistent set of units.  As mentioned above, by default, AcuConsole will convert values to MKS units if other units are specified with the units 'buttons' - and the values/units selected in AcuConsole will then be written to the input file as comments.
