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,… This shows nicely how powerful and general dimensional analysis can be applied.
