Experimental Fluid Mechanics 1The Pi-Theorem: Applications to Fluid Mechanics and Heat and Mass Transfer [1ed.]9783642195655, 3642195652

Author : L.P. Yarin (auth.)
Description:This volume presents applications of the Pi-Theorem to fluid mechanics and heat and mass transfer. The Pi-theorem yields a physical motivation behind many flow processes and therefore it constitutes a valuable tool for the intelligent planning of experiments in fluids. After a short introduction to the underlying differential equations and their treatments, the author presents many novel approaches how to use the Pi-theorem to understand fluid mechanical issues. The book is a great value to the fluid mechanics community, as it cuts across many subdisciplines of experimental fluid mechanics.
