Common Dimensionless Parameters in Fluid Mechanics
Common Dimensionless Parameters in Fluid MechanicsDimensionless Pi terms are used in many fluid mechanics applications. Some of the terms are used relatively frequently and have names. Some important dimensionless groups in fluid mechanics are shown in Table 9.1. In the table, ρ is density, V is fluid velocity, and L is some geometric length. Viscosity is represented by μ and gravitational acceleration is represented by g. Pressure is denoted by p. The frequency of the changing flow is
