Abstract:

A computer program to implement the Chen method of dimensional analysis is presented. The Chen method allows for relatively easy determination of dimensional groups using matrix algebra. The computer program to implement the method provides dimensional groups in simple format and is written in standard Fortran 77. Several examples of the use of the program are provided. Keywords Computer programming, Matrix algebra, Fortran 77, Chen method, Dimensional analysis, Programming languages, Data.
