The modeling process whereby distributed parameter fluid systems are described approximately by lumped parameter models is discussed using bond graph techniques. It is shown that despite the analogies which exist between some fluid systems and other physical systems, the lumping process for fluid systems introduces forms of nonlinear behavior not often encountered in other types of systems. Many such effects may be traced to the desire to use control volumes and Eulerian rather than Lagrangian descriptions of the fluid systems.
