St. used in particle-dynamics studies. is a dimensionless combination of five variables: acceleration of gravity 3. viscosity In. density p. particle velocity U. and particle diameter D. If St is proportional to p and inversely proportional to g. find its form. (b) Show that St is actually the quotient of two more traditional dimensionless groups. Solution: (a) The relevant dimensions are = {LT—2}. {,u} = {h-IL_1T_1}. {p} = {LIL—3}. {U} = {LT—l}. and {D} = To have ,u in the numerator and g in the denominator. we need the combination: _ —1 a a: c_‘M-T_1_i£ai’£b c_ 000 {SQ-{HHS} {P} {U} {D} -{LTHL}1L3} If} {1} -MLT ' luU Solve for a = —1. i: =1. e = —2. or: St = 2 pgD U2.-"l:gD) _ Froude number pUD.-"';r Reynoids number A as.

Using [p.Vfi} as repeating variables. rewrite this relationship in dimensionless form.

Ana. 5.6? A student needs to measlu‘e the drag on a prototype of characteristic length tip moving at velocity Up in air at sea-level conditions. He constructs a model of characteristic length #131. such that the ratio dps’dm = a factor He then measures the model drag under dynamically similar conditions. in sea-level air. The student claims that the drag force on the prototype will be identical to that of the model. Is this claim correct? Explain.

If Reynolds-munber effects are negligible. what will the pitching moment of the prototype wing be flying at the same Mach number at S-kin standard altitude? Solution: If Reynolds number is unimportant. then the dimensimlless moment coefficient MKpVng} must be a function only of the Mach number. Ma = V-‘a.
