Imperial Units

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A client's specifications require the design of the project to be in imperial units. 
Is this a system of measurement?  What are its length/weight/force units?
This is a project that involves brickwork, and I seem to recall that there was a manufacturer of bricks that had  bricks of a special size and shape that were called imperial bricks -- I suppose these specs could be referring to brick units.  But the existing bricks are commons, and the context seems to give imperial a meaning that is more probably related to a system of measurement.
