Abstract

A simplified exposition and its consequence are given for the dimensional analysis. We have first discussed Buckingham’s π theorem, which provides a guide to the number of dimensions parameters required to specify any particular phenomenon. The influence of dimensional analysis on air-water flow system is described in details and is applied to scaling the measurements of void fraction distributions in vertical circular plunging jets. This study highlights the dimensional analysis on air-water flow system, which is a convenient technique for estimating the magnitudes of various terms in the governing equations.

Key words: Dimension analysis; Buckingham’s theorem; Air-water flow; Void fraction.
