Unformatted text preview: Solution : Example Given : Power W is a function of torque T and angular velocity . To do : Express the relationship between W , T , and in dimensionless form. Solution : Step 1: Step 2: Step 3: Step 4: Step 5: Step 6: Example Given : Consider fully developed laminar flow through a very long round tube. Volume flow rate V is a function of the tubes inner diameter D , fluid viscosity , and axial pressure gradient dP / dx . To do : Use dimensional analysis to generate a nondimensional functional relationship. Solution : Step 1: Step 2: Step 3: Step 4: Step 5: Step 6:...
