Hi everybody!
Would someone please advise on the following matter.
I'm making up a table of railcar operating loads. One of the column includes abbreviated units of measurement such as kN, MN, N/mm2, etc. The question is: How should I title the column? I was thinking about titling it "Measurement", but I'm not 100% sure if it's OK since I am no native English speaker. What is the most typical heading for such a column?
Thank you!

Just "units" is OK? What about "measurement units"? Or will it be excessive?

Monstrously excessive! :biggrin:

(After all, what other sort of units could they be? :rolleyes: Accommodation units? :wink:)
