It is very difficult to

obtain general conclusions

with too many parameters

- Very complex process:
- Fluid flow (Navier-Stokes)
- Heat transfer
- Electromagnetism (Maxwell)

- There are two parameters: P1and P2:
- n=2

- There are two parameters: P1and P2:

- Units of X, P1, and P2 are the same:
- k=1 (only one independent unit in the problem)

- There are two parameters: P1and P2:

- Number of dimensionless groups:
- m=n-k
- m=1 (only one dimensionless group)
- P=P2/P1 (arbitrary dimensionless group)

- There are two asymptotic regimes:
- Regime I: P2/P1 0
- Regime II: P2/P1

- Each regime has a different set of NDG
- For each regime there are m NDG
- All NDG are less than 1 in their regime
- The edge of the regimes can be defined by NDG=1
- The magnitude of the NDG is a measure of their importance

- For the balance of the example:
- In regime I:

Properties of the correction functions

- The correction function is 1 near the asymptotic case
- The correction function depends on the NDG
- The less important NDG can be discarded with little loss of accuracy
- The correction function can be estimated empirically by comparison with calculations or experiments

- The concepts above can be applied when:
- The system has many equations
- The terms have the form of a product of powers
- The terms are functions instead of constants
- In this case the functions need to be normalized

- Driving forces:
- Gas shear
- Arc Pressure
- Electromagnetic forces
- Hydrostatic pressure
- Capillary forces
- Marangoni forces
- Buoyancy forces

- Balancing forces
- Inertial
- Viscous
