Dimensions and Units

GoldSim Quick Tour (7 of 23)

As you may have noticed in the animated example, when the elements were created and data were entered, the dimensions and units were specified. In fact, one of the more powerful features of GoldSim is that the program is dimensionally aware.

GoldSim has an extensive internal database of units and conversion factors. You can enter data and display results in any units. You can even define your own units.

When elements are linked, GoldSim ensures dimensional consistency and carries out the unit conversions internally. As a result, it is never necessary for you to carry out (error-prone) unit conversions or worry about dimensional consistency. GoldSim checks for consistency and carries out the conversions for you automatically.
