Analysis And Model Studies
analysis is defined as a mathematical technique used in research work for
design and conducting model tests.
fundamental units quantities such as length (L), mass (M), and time (T) are
fixed dimensions known as fundamental dimensions.
is defined as a yardstick to measure physical quantities like distance, area,
volume, mass etc.
Derive the dimensions for velocity.
is the distance (L) travelled per unit time (T)
= Distance/ Time = [L/T] = LT-1.
is nothing but small-scale repetition of the actual structure or machine.
List out the advantages of model analysis.
advantages of model analysis are:
performance of hydraulic structure or machine can be easily predicted in
advance from its model.
merits of alternative design can be predicted with the help of model testing
and the most economical and safe design may be finally adopted.
