Informationen zum Autor G. I. Barenblatt is Emeritus G. I. Taylor Professor of Fluid Mechanics at the University of Cambridge, Emeritus Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and Principal Scientist in the Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow. Klappentext This book deals with a non-traditional exposition of dimensional analysis! physical similarity theory and general theory of scaling phenomena. Zusammenfassung This book begins from a non-traditional exposition of dimensional analysis! physical similarity theory and general theory of scaling phenomena! using classical examples to demonstrate that the onset of scaling is not until the influence of initial and/or boundary conditions has disappeared but when the system is still far from equilibrium.
