Default Re: kN/m = lbf/ft

1 kilonewton/meter = 68.5217659 pounds-force/foot

3.5 kN/m * 68.5217659 = 239.82618065 lbf/ft

Depending on what information yu have got in terms of conversion tables the following will work :-
:-1 Ib f/ft2 = 47.8803 N/m2

:- 1 Ib f/ft = sq rt of 47.8803 N/m2 = 6.919 N/m

:- 1 Ib f/ft = 6.919 N/m / 1000 = 0.006919 KN/m

:- 3.5KN/m / 0.006919 KN/m = 505.8534

:- 3.5KN/m = 505.8534 Ibf/ft

There is a difference between kN/m and kN-m, also between lbf/ft and lbf-ft.

No that is incorrect.

3.5 kN/m = 239.82618 lbf/ft
3.5 kN-m = 2581.4675 lbf-ft

kN/m is kilonewton divided by meter
kN m is kilonewton multiplied by meter

There is a big difference.
