I do not know your code at all; and, perhaps, I'm misreading your question; but I believe that radians are dimensionless, therefore, you do not multiply radians by anything when you change space dimensions.
N code at all--just a fairly simple manual calculation. And you're absolutely right--radians are dimensionless being the ratio of an arc length to a circumference. I was just stating what was done. This is a really good demonstration of hte ins and outs of doing a real dynamic analysis, but I think it's got mistakes in it.
