I'm designing a new frame for my Locost and I have access to Solidworks 2017 Premium with FEA. I understand for torsional rigidity you constrain 2 points at one end of the frame and then "rotate" the other end with opposing forces so it twists the whole frame.

Problem is all Solidworks outputs is Von Mises Stress and Displacement in mm, inches or whatever measurement you want.

How do I convert the displacement and any other info I get into kgs/degree or lbs/degree?
