Bond Graph Methods in Structural Dynamics 710781

A series of examples, involving normal mode representations of a flexible railcar and various suspension models, is presented illustrating the use of bond graph techniques for assembling a structural dynamic system model from component models. Bond graph techniques are related to other methods for achieving the same goal, and the unique features of bond graph techniques are pointed out. Not only does the bond graph provide a graphical representation of the organized system equations, but also it allows the use of ENPORT programs for automating the process of manipulating the component relations into an explicit-state space format suitable for simulation or analysis. Nonlinear and active systems which interact with structural dynamic components are readily handled using bond graph techniques.
