    set SI-units

    Hi,
    I just took a premium year subscription.
    But I see US-units (inch, LBS etc.) is default.
    In the Netherlands (EU) we use the SI-system (m, s, kg).
    Where on the site can I set SI-system as defualt?

    Most calculators are unit less unless otherwise indicated.

    For example:
    [url]https://www.engineersedge.com/beam_bending/calculators_protected/beam_deflection_3.htm[/url]

    The units are suggested for the Modulus of elasticity: lbs/in^2 or N/m^2.

    If using SI units keep N/mm^2 and then mm for the other inputs of the calculator.

    Keep units consistent with either SI or imperial.
