Classification of models
classifications of models are
i. Undistorted models
ii. Distorted models
the scale ratio for the linear dimensions of the model and prototype is same,
then the model is said to be undistorted model.
distorted model is said to be a distorted model only when it is not
geometrically similar to prototype.
Advantages of distorted models.
advantages of distorted models are,
vertical dimensions of the model can be measured accurately.
cost of model can be reduced.
3. Turbulent flow in the model can be maintained.
