What are the units for properties used in Sherlock?

Generally, Sherlock uses metric units, unless otherwise noted. For reference, here are the units information for two popular Sherlock tools:

Materials Manager --
• Elastic Modulus (MPa)
• CTE (1/C)
• Density Properties (tonnes/mm^3)
• Thermal Conductivity (W/m-K)

Laminate Manager --
• CTE (ppm/C)
• Elastic Modulus (MPa)
• Density (g/cm^3)
• Thermal Conductivity (W/m-K)

If there is interest in unit details for other Sherlock functionalities, please reach out to me directly and I'll update this list!
