Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is entitled "Dimensional Analysis: Examples of the use of symmetry". Hence a reader expects to find general material about Dimensional Analysis and then read about its application to various situations with the use of symmetry as an auxiliary tool. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The true title of the book should be "Problems in Fluid Mechanics using Dimensional Analysis and Symmetry".

This thin book is divided into 10 brief chapters. The first chapter is a quick introduction just a little over 2 pages; the second chapter, just a little over three pages, is a demonstration of the method to be applied. Then the remaining eight chapters deal with specific problems from fluid dynamics: pipe flow; material properties; gasdynamical examples; body in nonuniform flow; turbulant flow; waves on a free liquid surface; examples with other fluid properties; ideal gas equations of state. A short bibliography is included too. Although 1-2 chapters with the theory of dimensional analysis should be present anyway due to the title of the book and its subsequent use, such chapters are not included.

The book is probably useful to engineers working on fluid dynamics but it is hard to imagine that the book will become a hit to a wider audience and thus a Dover classic. Simply stated, this book is not really a book about dimensional analysis; it is about fluid mechanics as the author himself confesses in the opening statement of his brief preface: "The contents of this little book were first compiled as part of a series of lectures in fluid mechanics..."

found it very hard to understand - in the end I bought another book, which is much better. (Dimensional Analysis and Intelligent Experimentation.)
