PSI to kN Conversion

Postby Michelangelo1 » Tue Apr 03, 2012 11:46 am

Hi all,
I am seeking advice how to convert the PSI to kN. Our issue is to load test the concreted bolts (axial pull test). Since we have to load test up to 100kN normal small load cell won't do the job. We will have to use Enerpac hollow jack (hydraulics) to pull test the bolts. The Enerpac gauge is in PSI & Bars and we need to get the kN. Anyone knows how to crack this one, please?

The key to this one is to know the square inches of area you want to use. Then you have to know that there are 224.808943871 pounds in 1 kilonewtons. The pound-force is a non-SI unit of force or weight (properly abbreviated "lbf" or "lbf"). The pound-force is equal to a mass of one pound multiplied by the standard acceleration due to gravity on Earth (which is defined as exactly 9.806 65 m/s², or exactly 196,133/6096 ft/s², or approximately 32.174 05 ft/s²
