Bio Unit 3 Notes 7.1 Allometry is defined as the change of proportions with increase in size of a single species or between adults of related groups (Li, 2000). Allometric relations only exist when there is similarity of structure and function between biological units of different size. If completely different mechanisms are involved (for example, locomotion of bacteria compared to horses), then no allometric relationship would be expected. 7.2 Dimensional analysis (see Section 4.1) is a time-honored technique used in engineering research to group pertinent variables into dimensionless numbers to generalize empirical correlations. Reynolds Number- Equations for fluid flow are often given in terms of the Reynolds Number. Forced convection heat transfer equations usually relate to the dimensionless Nusslet Number, d= object diameter, v= fluid velocity, = ρ . Fluid density, = fluid viscosity, h = convection coefficient, k = fluid thermal conductivity. 7.3
