Hello all and good morning,
I'm using "PTC Creo Simulate" from 6-7 years. And for loads units I have typically used Newton (N) or Kg. Ever I used the unit Tonnes (Ton).
Some my customers always use a unit of Ton.
But today Further to a assessment of a customer, I discovered that the Ton unit, not international, is "American short ton".
That means that to change:
1 ton (short ton American) 8.8964e + 3 = Newtons
This is a problem that the value is less than 10e + 3 N
If higher, the difference would be envisaged as a safety margin.
But to be lower, depending on whether they are 10, 20, 5 or 30 tons, the differential increases considerably.
Please I think it would be important to add international unit tonnes
Thanks for all and BR,
