FINITE MODE BOND GRAPH REPRESENTATION OF VEHICLE-GUIDEWAY INTERACTION PROBLEMS

Bond graph representations are used to develop and interpret classical modal analysis techniques for the prediction of vehicle-guideway dynamics. The method can be generalized to multiple span guideways using any dynamic boundary conditions at support locations and nonlinear vehicle models can be used with any vehicle displacement-time history. The procedure is illustrated for a two-span Bernoulli-Euler Guideway with first-order dynamic boundary conditions. The ultimate applications are to high-speed ground transportation systems.
