Abstract : The association of A and AEE work with operational considerations will necessitate the parallel use of traditional and metric units for some years to come and not all metric engineering information will be in pure SI units. To provide guidance on correct use, the relationships between SI units, non-SI units likely to be used commonly in engineering applications and current international operational units are reviewed. The presentation of numerical values is discussed. Rules to promote uniformity in the formulation of abbreviations at A and AEE are given. (Author)
