Qualitative Reasoning about a Large System Using Dimensional Analysis


We present a simple qualitative model of a large system, viz . a nuclear power plant using a pressurized water reactor . We use the technique of dimensional reasoning, which has recently been shown to be useful in the traditional small-scale problems of qualitative physics, such as springs, boilers, etc . Here we extend the technique so that it can be… (More)
