    Abstract

    A multibond graph element for a general single moving body is derived. A multibody system can easily be described as an interconnection of these elements. 3-D mechanical systems usually contain dependent inertias having both differential and integral causality. A method is described for the transformation of inertias with differential causality to an integral form, using formula manipulation. The program also helps to find experimentally the optimal choice for the generalized coordinates. The resulting explicit differential equation may be solved using a standard integration routine or simulation program.
