Using models and dimensional techniques greatly facilitates the design and testing of engineering systems. It also saves a significant amount of time, effort, and expense in the product development process, while minimizing the possibility of design flaws. Here is the first book to provide a practical, in-depth look at modeling and analysis methods, with a central focus on the interests and concerns of engineers and applied scientists. The book discusses various methods in a comprehensive manner, and uses an array of illustrations, graphs, and numeric tables to illuminate the material. More than 200 worked out examples-drawn from engineering and related applied science disciplines-are also included. In all, this book puts the very potent tools of the "dimensional method" within reach of its readers.
