Default scale problem
Posts: n/a
I built two models with one is the 1/25 scale of the other. And their meshes are generated by the same scale. Who can tell me how to explain the scale problem if both the results are thought to be effective? Thank you very much.

i believe you can use the Froude number if you want to relate them between each other. The Froude number is commonly used to respect the scale of a model with its physical conditons.

Hope this helps
