Abstract

The use of numerical models and simulation during development, testing and operation of marine engineering systems is becoming more and more an important tool as modern computer capability increases rapidly. Despite the latest development of powerful numerical methods and computer capability, the preparation of a mathematical model in a proper form is not a trivial task, particularly when the system is non-linear and involves more than one energy domain, as for most marine engineering systems. This paper, therefore, introduces the unified graphical modelling methodology called bond graphs. This notation is shown to lead to a graphical model description of a physical system very much resembling a chemical bond diagram in appearance and can be manipulated in an algorithm fashion to produce the system differential equations, or even processed directly by computer. The modelling methodology and some useful features of bond graphs are presented through a compound marine engineering system
