Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am building a model in Abaqus and wondered if somone could assist with the units I need to enter.

I have built my parts using mm as the dimension, i.e. part is 10 units (mm) wide.

(To clarify this can also be entered as metres as in 10e-3, however I chose to be consistent with the mm approach).

Then for my material data I have entered my mass as 0.0025 (which was 2.5g/cc).

Youngs Modulus as 72000 and for the Plastic data I have entered my yield stress data as MPa (such as 425 with a plastic strain of 0.0090 (mm^{-3})).

As I wasn't consistent in using the SI measurements for mm (e-3) does this have a knock on effect for the above data?

Now for my loading of my parts can anyone clarify what I will need to enter for a 5000N load (pressure force)?

Thanks in advance
