      Hello,

      I'm using the wind loading generator annd in the options we have lines concerning "knot".

      It's a very useful unit, and fairly old. Try putting knot into Google.

      Sorry it's the velocity

      Correct, one nautical mile per hour. One of the few Imperial units still in (fairly) common usage outside of the US.
