Make every element of an array displaystyle?

I am typing the following equations,

\left\{ \begin{array}{l}
L = {C_L}{\left( {\frac{{{k^3}}}{{\varepsilon _h^2}} + C_\eta ^2\frac{{{\nu ^{3/2}}}}{{\varepsilon _h^{1/2}}}} \right)^{{1 \mathord{\left/
 {\vphantom {1 2}} \right.
 \kern-\nulldelimiterspace} 2}}}\\
T = {\left( {\frac{{{k^2}}}{{\varepsilon _h^2}} + C_T^2\frac{\nu }{{{\varepsilon _h}}}} \right)^{{1 \mathord{\left/
 {\vphantom {1 2}} \right.
 \kern-\nulldelimiterspace} 2}}}\\
{T_{\lim }} = \frac{{0.6}}{{\sqrt 6 {C_\mu }\varsigma \sqrt {{S_{ij}}{S_{ij}}} }}
\end{array} \right.

However, I found the line spacing and fonts in the formula is "automatically" reduced and resized by the compiler. :(

Could anyone tell me how to normalize it? Thanks

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

In addition to methods of making arrays be displaystyle it is generally better to use align from the amsmath package rather than using array to align equations – David Carlisle Jul 26 '12 at 18:47
Thanks a lot, align method works!! – Daniel Jul 26 '12 at 19:13

this should yield some improvement; it requires use of amsmath:

\left\{ \begin{aligned}
L &= {C_L}{\left( {\frac{{{k^3}}}{{\varepsilon _h^2}} + C_\eta ^2\frac{{{\nu ^{3/2}}}}{{\varepsilon _h^{1/2}}}} \right)^{{1 \mathord{\left/
 {\vphantom {1 2}} \right.
 \kern-\nulldelimiterspace} 2}}}\\
T &= {\left( {\frac{{{k^2}}}{{\varepsilon _h^2}} + C_T^2\frac{\nu }{{{\varepsilon _h}}}} \right)^{{1 \mathord{\left/
 {\vphantom {1 2}} \right.
 \kern-\nulldelimiterspace} 2}}}\\
{T_{\lim }} &= \frac{{0.6}}{{\sqrt 6 {C_\mu }\varsigma \sqrt {{S_{ij}}{S_{ij}}} }}
\end{aligned} \right.

Yes, this works! Thanks a lot – Daniel Jul 26 '12 at 19:13
