Several problems in engineering realm pose modeling and simulation difficulty due to severe non–linear behavior and debilitating singular or stiff conditions that act as additional impediments. In many such instances advanced numerical schemes are employed to either relax or simplify the PDE that defines the physical process to obtain reasonable output from the simulation. Digressing from this traditional approach, we present an experimental similitude method in this paper to analyze non–linear systems. Combined with the use of original mapping algorithms, we discuss the benefits of empirical similarity techniques and present a heat transfer example for exposition.
