Modal bond graph representations of the dissipative model of rigid, cylindrical fluid transmission lines with laminar flow are developed. Modal approximation techniques are used for both hydraulic and pneumatic lines. The modeling and simulation procedures for fluid networks coupled with nonlinear and dynamic systems are greatly facilitated using bond graphs. The physical interpretation of the model is preserved in this approach. Simulation results for hydraulic single lines are compared with results derived by the quasi-method of characteristics. The simulation results for fluid networds for various line and termination configurations are illustrated.
