  Dimensionless number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Such a number is typically defined as a product or ratio of quantities which have units of identical dimension, in such a way that the corresponding units can be converted to identical units and then cancel.
Dimensionless numbers are widely used in the fields of mathematics, physics, and engineering but also in everyday life.
The power consumption of a stirrer with a particular geometry is a function of the density and the viscosity of the fluid to be stirred, the size of the stirrer given by its diameter, and the speed of the stirrer.

 Reynolds number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is the most important dimensionless number in fluid dynamics and provides a criterion for determining dynamic similitude.
Laminar flow occurs at low Reynolds numbers, where viscous forces are dominant, and is characterized by smooth, constant fluid motion, while turbulent flow, on the other hand, occurs at high Reynolds numbers and is dominated by inertial forces, producing random eddies, vortices and other flow fluctuations.
In this sense, the Reynolds number is an indicator of the range of scales in the flow.

 Dimensionless Numbers and Numbers with Dimension
The numbers of trigonometry, the degrees of a circle and angles, reflect fixed proportions within the numbers themselves, within spacetime, within the proportion and boundaries (dimensions) of a the circle.
The numbers relating to exponents of powers reflect specific relationships of the numbers themselves, which we have seen reflect even the behavior of the planets in their apparently circular orbits around the sun.
In the square of this particular number, one might consider the exponent (2n) as being a dimensionless number in relation to a number with dimension (756feet).

In equations for calculating head losses in pipes, diameter is the I.D. of the pipe, V is the fluid velocity, rho is the fluid density, and µ is the viscosity of the fluid.
Reynolds number has been so valuable for dealing with flow in pipes that analogous numbers are desirable for other flow situations such as mixing in tanks and transfer from gas bubbles.
The logical choices for a Reynolds number for a rising bubble are bubble diameter, relative velocity of the bubble versus the fluid, fluid density, and fluid viscosity.

 HYLE 6-2 (2000): Modeling in Chemical Engineering
The latter are powers of dimensionless numbers, all of which depend on the Reynolds number in complex ways: equations with up to four terms, containing natural logarithms in various places, several occurrences of the Reynolds number, as well as dimensionless numbers characterizing the geometry of the system.
A special problem for dimensional analysis are dimensionless magnitudes, in particular shape factors such as the ratio of the length and diameter of a pipe, the relative roughness of a surface, the particle shape factor, or the tortuosity of pores in a packed bed reactor.
First, there are a number of background assumptions (models) that apply to all contexts where measurement takes place, in particular a measurement theory (consisting of axioms and operational definitions) for each of the relevant magnitudes, the choice of fundamental units, and the requirement that all equations containing magnitudes have to be dimensionally invariant.

In space, the number of dimensionless groups required to characterize two-phase flows is reduced by two because of the absence of the magnitude of gravity and the angle of orientation with respect to gravity.
It also reduces the number of dimensionless groups required to characterize two-phase flows by two, because of absence of the magnitude of gravity and the angle of orientation with respect to gravity.

 Drag Force   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Reynolds number has been found to be a useful dimensionless number that can characterize the drag coefficient's dependence upon the velocity.
The Reynolds number is basically the ratio of the inertial force of the medium over its viscous force.
For small values of the Reynolds number - called laminar flow since the flow is nonturbulant - the drag coefficient is inversely proportional to the velocity.

In this case, the number of molecules, N, the simulation cell volume, V, and the total energy, E, are all held constant.
This means that the solution of Newton's equation of motion yields identical dimensionless velocities and trajectories for all LJ fluids; i.e., the trajectory of the system through dimensionless phase space is identical for all conformal fluids at the same dimensionless state point.
Thus, the results of the simulation are not just dependent upon the dimensionless state of the system, but also upon the nature of the second component; i.e., upon the ratio of the model energy and size parameters.

In this case, the number of molecules, the system volume, and the temperature are all fixed at specific values, but the energy fluctuates in time.
This means that the solution of Newton's equation of motion yields identical dimensionless velocities and trajectories for all LJ fluids; i.e., the trajectory of the system through dimensionless phase space is identical for all conformal fluids when computed with an MD simulation.
If the values of dimensionless properties are generated at a given dimensionless state point, those values can then be used to calculate the actual property for any conformal fluid.

 Doppler measurement and dimensionless speed   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The formulas in relativity don't work unless the speed is represented by a plain dimensionless number (v/c, or beta)--almost as if nature is suggesting that we think of speed that way instead of in terms like "meters per second." Moreover, Doppler speed measurement has become an increasingly common part of life.
The relativistic Doppler frequency-ratio formula (notice it is for a dimensionless ratio ƒ of frequencies, not for a difference expressed in terms of some unit) is ƒ=square root[(1+s)/(1-s)].
The speed has to be a pure unit-free number or else it wouldn't work: could not be added to one.

The Schmidt number, often abbreviated Sc, is a dimensionless quantity with important applications to transport phenomena.

Notice that in certain cases (like flat plates) one can define a local dimensionless number by using x, the distance down the object in the direction of the flow.
Finding the local Nusselt number would allow one to then solve for hx, the “local” heat transfer coefficient.
We’re generally not interested in knowing what the heat transfer coefficient at one particular point on the surface is, though—we want the average h (which is the one we’re familiar with from all the heat transfer work we have done), and this is precisely the one we get from NuL.
