Theory of Models
Theory of ModelsThe theory of models is developed from the principles of dimensional analysis. These principles tell us that any prototype can be described by a series of dimensionless parameters, which I will call Pi terms in this chapter. For the prototype system, the parameter that we would like to measure, Π1, can be represented as a function Φ of a set of n dimensionless Pi terms.
