How to apply enforced rotation?

Does anyone know what are the units for enforced rotation?  Is it in degrees or radians?

 

Thanks

I think I figured this out by trial and error.  Enforced rotation is in radians.  If anyone could confirm this it would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Yes, definitely in radians.

Enforced rotation is an SPCD entry in Nastran.  If you have a look at the NX Nastran Quick Reference Guide (via Help -> NX Nastran), then look for the SPCD entry... it advises that rotational DoF are in radians.

But running a test case as you have obviously done is always worthwhile!

Thank you for confirming this.
