10/28/2010 2 Similarity and Models (7-6) 3 Incomplete Similarity Ideally we will equate all the independent dimensionless parameters thus rendering similarity between the dependent parameter in the model and prototype This is easy with only 1 independent parameter, but becomes more challenging as the number of independent parameters increases We may have to choose the most important parameter and live with not matching the others Consider drag force on a ship. Similarity and Models (7-6) Froude number matches wave resistance in the model and prototype Difficult to model analytically If we now want to match Re, it cannot be done with velocity change and size change. Kinematic viscosity adjustment is all that we have left to work with. If you run the numbers, (see the text) you find that the ratio of kinematic viscosity between model and prototype is 1/1000. Good luck finding a suitable liquid for this Can’t use air We have to pick either Fr or Re matching 4
10/28/2010 3 Similarity and Models (7-6) It is best to pick Fr matching since there is no analytical way to predict wave resistance.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
