Bond Graph Assignment 1
Two masses are connected in series as
shown with springs and dampers. With a
force, the displacement, velocity and
momentum of each block is desired as a
function of time.
K1 = 40
B1 = 3
M1 = 2
K2 = 60
B2 = 4
M2 = 2
F = 1
CampG software was used to create a
bond graph model of the system in
The software converts the model into
several Matlab .m files for analysis.
The given values were placed into the
The result over 10 seconds are shown in
Figure 1 and 2.
Figure 1 shows that the momentum of
both blocks slowly reaches zero by about
The displacement of block 1 settles at
about .025 m after just over 10 seconds,
and block 2 is displaced .016 m after just
over 10 seconds.
