Abstract

Abstract The efficient use of bond graph modeling techniques in three-dimensional mechanical dynamics has been hampered by the topological complexity of typical system models. The application of basic tensor analysis methods in bond graph modeling of both discrete and continuous systems leads to significant topological simplifications. The simplified vector and tensor based models express effort, flow, and energy balance laws in a coordinate system independent form.
