Per the title, what are some of the oldest dimensional analysis books out there with unsolved exercises? Maybe there are some hidden gems from a long time ago out there.
Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!
