Roger - 1 psi = 6894.7523Pa

1ksi = 1000psi (commonly called kips...used a lot in civil/structural)

1MPa = 1x10^6Pa

Hope this helps.

Unit is common in mechanical type engineering where you are often dealing hundreds of thousands of PSI. Just to make it worse, some literature calls this unit kips.

: Roger:

: I see that your company is in California, which happens to be where I live as well. I have never heard of the unit called kilo pounds per square inch. Who in the world uses that unit and why? In any event, instead of "KSI" it would be much more informative if it were "kpsi" (i.e., kilo pounds per square inch). Note that the kilo is "k" not "K".

: Have you ever thought of just calling it "1000 psi"?

Keep in mind of this too

KSI = Kilo pounds/ sq. in (lb/in^2)
Pascal = Newton / sq. meter (N/m^2)

MPa = Megapascal

You will have a clue.

the full monty: assuming you mean "kips/in^2 of course.

1MPa = 145 psi
7MPa = 1000 psi
therefore:
7MPa = 1 ksi
