Indeed they are. That’s why I listed them as a simplifying assumption. I didn’t make that assumption thinking it was a good one. I did it to simplify the code in the very initial stages to make sure it was working. I am not an industry expert but one of the first things I do, and I think most professionals do, is get initial results that are simplified and normalized. For example, assuming 1 unit length depth, or one second, or whatever the case, before eliminating that assumption to complete the problem. In applied calculus I do this all the time. You can take the Integral for example, make sure it’s correct, then apply the constants outside the integral. It keeps things cleaner and clearer.
In reality the I will have to eliminate the rectangular assumption, which through that alone will erase the 1m depth “placeholder” I have started with. It will make for a more accurate analysis, and lighter brakes ðŸ™‚

Thanks for the comment.
