Buckingham Pi theorem

The application of this theorem provides a

fairly easy method to identify dimensionless

parameters (numbers).

However identification of the influencing

parameters is the job of an expert rather than

that of a novice.

HOMOGENEITY

The principle is basic for the correctness of

any equation.

It states If an equation truly expresses a

proper relationship between variables in a

physical phenomenon, then each of the

additive terms will have the same

dimensions or these should be dimensionally

homogeneous.

In the engineering point of view model can be

defined as the representation of physical

system that may be used to predict the

behavior of the system in the desired aspect

The system whose behavior is to be predicted

by the model is called the prototype.

Similarity

ratio of length parameters. All the similar linear dimension of the

model and prototype should have the same ratio. This I called

geometric similarity. The ratio is generally denoted by the scale or

scale factor

Dynamic Similarity:

number, Weber number etc. be equal for the model and prototype. These

numbers are ratios of inertia, viscous gravity and surface tension forces.

This condition implies that the ratio of forces on fluid elements at

corresponding points (homologous) in the model and prototype should be

the same. This requirement is called dynamic similarity

Kinematic Similarity:

similarities exist, then velocity ratios and acceleration ratios will be the

same throughout the flow field. This will mean that the streamline patterns

will be the same in both cases of model and prototype. This is called

kinematic similarly

Reynolds number (Re) = Inertia force/Viscous

force

Mach number = Inertia force/Elastic force

Froude number = Inertia force/Gravity force

Weber number : It is defined as the ratio of

the inertia force to surface tension force

For the dynamic similarities between the model

and prototype, the ratios of corresponding force

acting on the corresponding points should be

equal.

The ratio of the forces of non-dimensional

numbers it means that for the dynamic similarity

between model and prototype , the dimensionless

number should be same for model and prototype.

The law on which the model are designed for

dynamic similarity are called model laws or

similarity laws

It states that the Reynolds number for the

model and prototype must be equal where the

viscous force is predominant in addition to the

inertia force

Types of Models

geometrically similar with its prototype. The condition of

similarities are completely satisfied for such models hence the

results obtained from the model test are easily used

Distorted model:

In such model, the different scale ratios for linear dimensions are

adopted.

vertical and horizontal

Distortion of Configuration Model does not be an

resemblance of its Prototype.

Material Distortion - Adoption of different material for

model and prototype

Scale Effect

The behaviour of the prototype as predicted by two models

with different scale ratio is generally not the same. Such an

difference in the prediction of behaviour prototype is known as

Scale Effect.

Introduction

Need of experiments :

(i)Theory is incomplete and needs to be supplemented.

(ii) Information of fundamental nature needed in many

areas.

Experimental information towards solving aerodynamic

problems could be obtained in a number of ways. Flight

tests, rocket flights, drop tests water tunnels, ballistic

ranges and wind tunnels are some of the ways by which

aerodynamic data can be generated. With the help of well

performed experiments even information of fundamental

nature could be derived

Wind tunnel

Majority of experimental data needed in

aerodynamics is generated using wind tunnels. Wind

Tunnel is a device for producing airflow relative to

the body under test. Wind tunnels provide uniform

flow conditions in their test section.
