Applied Dimensional Analysis and Modelingprovides the full mathematical background and step-by-step procedures for employing dimensional analyses, along with a wide range of applications to problems in engineering and applied science, such as fluid dynamics, heat flow, electromagnetics, astronomy and economics. This new edition offers additional worked-out examples in mechanics, physics, geometry, hydrodynamics, and biometry.

  • Covers 4 essential aspects and applications:
    • principal characteristics of dimensional systems
    • applications of dimensional techniques in engineering, mathematics and geometry
    • applications in biosciences, biometry and economics
    • applications in astronomy and physics
  • Offers more than 250 worked-out examples and problems with solutions
  • Provides detailed descriptions of techniques of both dimensional analysis and dimensional modeling
