Dimensional Analysis and Similarity

The focus of this course is on dimensional analysis and similarity. We will first explore the idea and importance of geometric and dynamic similarity. Next, we will identify some important dimensional numbers and use them to non-dimensionalize the Navier-Stokes equations. Finally, we will explore the Buckingham-Pi Theorem, which provides a mathematically formal basis for deriving non-dimensional groups for any physical problem. By using Ansys Fluent to solve simulation examples and homework, you will get hands-on experience and deepen your understanding of the concepts studied in this course.
