What is the meaning of the unit [mrad] for a rotation?

Answer

For the unit of the rotation angle, the wheel in RSTAB was selected.

For example, the results of the nodal deformation in Table 3.6 are output in mrad, milli-radian.

The following general formulas apply for the conversion of the angles, where rad is to be used for the unit of radian length:

From arc to dimension: alpha = (180 ° / pi) * x

From degrees to radians: x = (pi / 180 °) * alpha

The following formula applies for the direct conversion with the mrad unit used in RSTAB:

From arc to dimension: alpha = (180 ° / (pi * 1000)) * x

Caution: mrad!
