Introducing fluid dynamics using dimensional analysis

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Resumé

Many aspects of fluid dynamics can be introduced using dimensional analysis, combined with some basic physical principles. This approach is concise and allows exploration of both the laminar and turbulent limits—including important phenomena that are not normally dealt with when fluid dynamics is first introduced as a precise mathematical discipline. In this paper, we use dimensional analysis to understand drag forces on bodies, flow speeds through tubes, and lift forces.
