General bond graph methods for the description, analysis, and simulation of dynamic systems are illustrated through the study of vehicle drive line dynamics. Emphasis is placed upon the problem of assembling a compatible and efficient system description from multiport models of the system components. Examples show how state space descriptions for analysis and block diagrams for analog simulation may be obtained systematically from bond graphs. Digital simulation is conveniently accomplished using the ENPORT programs, which accept bond graphs directly.
