Calculation RFEM RSTAB

Why is the result of the formula calculation output by the factor 1000 too small compared to the numerical calculation, even though there are no dimensions?

Answer

When entering formulas with values without dimensions, it is assumed that they refer to the SI units. If the searched unit is not a SI unit but a multiple of it (for example, kN instead of N), the result is scaled accordingly. The example in the picture would be 1000 N/m = 1 kN/m.
