Units

Under the General tab in the Project Settings dialog, you can choose the Units that you wish to use for Stress, Settlement, Time and Permeability.

Stress Units

The Stress Unit options are:

  • Metric units - MPa, kPa, tonnes/m2
  • Imperial units - ksf, tons/ft2

The selected Stress Units determine the units of stress, length, force used in the analysis, as summarized in the table below.

Settlement Units

The Settlement Units determine the units used for the output of settlement/consolidation results. The Settlement Unit options are:

  • Metric units - meters, centimeters, millimeters
  • Imperial units - feet, inches

The available Settlement Units will vary according to the selection of Stress Unit (metric or imperial).

NOTE: whenever the Stress or Settlement units are changed in the Project Settings dialog, the currently selected units automatically become the default Unit selection for all NEW files.

Time Units

The Time Units can only be specified if the Time-Dependent Consolidation Analysis checkbox is selected. The Time Unit options are:

  • Seconds
  • Minutes
  • Days
  • Months
  • Years
  • Date

See the Time Dependent Consolidation topic for more information.

Permeability Units

The Permeability Units can be specified if the Time-Dependent Consolidation Analysis checkbox is selected.

The Permeability Units determine the input units for K or Cv in the Soil Properties dialog.
