When searching with Data Mining Techniques to identify or find out dimensionless groups (DGs) in technical literature, it is possible to meet errors/faults/omissions concerning both, the form and the content of such groups. In the present study, a methodological framework has been developed in terms of a logical flow chart, including 11 activity stages and 7 decision nodes, to acquire/process/store/retrieve knowledge for reconstruction and identification of these groups. Case Based Reasoning (CBR), especially modified to meet the needs of this work, has been used for tracing causality paths by similarity and making correction suggestions. Two case examples are presented to prove the functionality of the proposed methodology.
