Could someone here comment, either here or there?

Alternatively, do you know of existing ways to "algorithmify" non-dimensionalization?

In your problem, for example, substitute t = t

The choice of t

In your problem, the dependent variable is already dimensionless. However, in most problems that is not the case. If the dependent variable is not dimensionless, you can do the same trick with that variable.

This gives:

$$τ=\frac{mgLt}{b}$$

$$ε=\frac{m^2gL^3}{b^2}$$

$$τ=\frac{mgLt}{b}$$

$$ε=\frac{m^2gL^3}{b^2}$$
