Static Load Analysis force unit type

Recommended Posts

If my model has units of Kg, mm, s and I am expecting force in mN, do I input Newtons into my static loads loadcase form as it says on the documentation or do I input mN since that is the force unit of the model?

Input the loads per the unit setting in MotionView.

 

The documentation is likely written from a perspective of a "standard" units set that is commonly used traditionally in multibody dynamics (mm, kg, s, N)

 

Note, if you are using the static loads event from the vehicle library task wizard, you may want to check your results carefully.  I think this was developed with the assumption of using N as the units of force.  Not sure if it will translate correctly if using a different units system for Force.  It may, but again, check your results carefully.
