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?


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