Properties of the natural dimensionless groups (NDG)

  • 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

Properties of the correction functions
Properties of the correction functions

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


Generalization of oms
Generalization of OMS

  • 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
