Part of the Experimental Fluid Mechanics book series (FLUID, volume 1)

Abstract

The present book deals with the concepts and methods of the dimensional analysis and their applications to various thermohydrodynamic phenomena in continuous media. A comprehensive exposition of the results of systematic analysis of a number of important problems in this area in the framework of the \( \rm Pi \)-theorem is given in nine chapters. In Chap. 2 the basics of the dimensional analysis are discussed. In particular, the principle of dimensional homogeneity and non-dimensionalization of the mass, momentum, energy and diffusion equations and the corresponding initial and boundary conditions are described in this chapter.
