    BUKINGHAM π METHOD

    BUKINGHAM π METHOD PROCEDURE FOR BUKINGHAM’S  π METHOD Let total variables be ( X1, X2, X3, …, Xn ) = n , say n=6 Write X1 = F ( X2, X3, …, Xn) Now write it in the equation form containing n variables as           F1 ( X1, X2, X3, …, Xn) = 0 Let m be the total fundamental dimensions for the n variables, say m= 4=M,L,T, θ Then number of dimensionless group in this case will […]

    * Dimensional Analysis–Part–2

    Dimensional Analysis–Part–2 NOTE: Rayleigh method is applicable as long as total number of variables is 5. For more than five variables, number of equation to be solved is much more than the quantities to be found. Buckingham π theorem Buckingham π theorem is the most commonly used method. It is an improvement over Rayleigh’s Method. Rayleigh’s […]
