Piped water cooling of concrete: An exercise in scaling

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Continuum modelling in a industrial engineering context is as much an art as a science. "Keep it simple" is the best modelling advice one can offer while the correct scaling of the problem is generally the key technical tool. Here, a dam construction problem that arose out of a South African Mathematics in Industry Study Group meeting provides a useful foil for illustrating these principles to students in their later undergraduate years.
