3.27 and 3.36). The units of length are determined either by the height and width variables in the /initialize/uniform menu (Section 3.13) or by the width variable in PPM2OOF.
The thickness of the elements is assumed to be 1. Forces scale linearly with the thickness.
Thermal expansion coefficients have dimensions of strain/temperature, which is since strain is dimensionless. The units you use for thermal expansion must be consistent with those used for deltaT (Section 3.1).
In the listings in Section 4.5 below, the dimensions of each parameter are given in brackets at the end of each description. [like this]
