About this book

Introduction

This monograph provides the fundamentals of dimensional analysis and illustrates the method by numerous examples for a wide spectrum of applications in engineering. The book covers thoroughly the fundamental definitions and the Buckingham theorem, as well as the choice of the system of basic units. The authors also include a presentation of model theory and similarity solutions. The target audience primarily comprises researchers and practitioners but the book may also be suitable as a textbook at university level.
