Definitions and Explanations of Characteristic Numbers

Within this section the usage of the characteristic numbers dialog is explained. In addition the definition and physical meaning is given. This tool can help you to define parameters reasonable, like size of the mesh elements or time steps. It also allows an estimation if the problem under investigation can be handled by CrysMAS at all. Of course this requires background knowledge in fluid dynamics and the physics of heat transfer, which this manual cannot provide. Please refer to literature available. Some hints are given in the bibliography.
