[This chapter provides an introduction into the topic of dimensional analysis. Terms and definitions are given. It is shown what a physical quantity, a base quantity and a quantity system is. Then physical equations and dimensional constants are explained. The Buckingham-Theorem (Pi-Theorem) is...
[This chapter explains the fundamental of model theory which can be used for obtaining scaled experiments in a laboratory.]
[This chapter provides several illustrative examples on how to use dimensional analysis in order to obtain the structure of a solution for problems of various areas. The method is applied in this chapter for examples from mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, electrical machines, biology,…...
[As already mentioned, dimensional analytical considerations provide exact results. The solution of a problem is considerably simplified, however in most cases the result must be complemented by experimental evidence or by solving the differential equations describing the problem.]
