10/21/2010 2 Lecture Example 6-6 3 Introduction This chapter is devoted to scaling/non-dimensionalization/ normalization We will deal with normalization of data/results in order to generalize the solutions and their use You rarely see figures given in terms of units [ft/s, N/m 2 , etc.]; instead, data is non-dimensionalized for generality (similitude) Numerical simulation Laboratory experiments Reference books/textbook Normalization allows the use of data/results regardless of scales, material properties, etc. 4
