Dimensional Analysis and Similarity Theory in Applied Mechanics and Heat Transfer
January 2014, Wiley-ISTE
Dimensional analysis is an essential scientific method and a powerful tool for solving problems in physics and engineering. Similarity theory establishes similarity criteria for different physical phenomena and studies the properties of the phenomena by means of these criteria. This book discusses how dimensional analysis and similarity theory are applied to solving problems in applied mechanics and heat transfer and will appeal to scientists, researchers, and industrial engineers interested in this subject area.
