This unit is commonly used in the UK, US unit systems. British Thermal Unit (therm.)-Inch Per Square Foot Per Hour Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (therm.)-in/h-ft2-°F) has a dimension of MLT-3Q-1 where M is mass, L is length, T is time, and Q is temperatur. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit W/m-K by multiplying its value by a factor of 0.1441313976.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
