1. Dimensional analysis on the flash heating weakening

Dimensional analysis is a powerful tool to refine the physical phenomena with reasonable number of governing parameters. Here is my application of dimensional analysis to get he flash heating weakening mechanism, as a final project of Harvard course EPS 259. The results are very consistent with the theoretical solution from Rice (2006). More details can be found below.
