Over the past few years a study was focused on the development of bond graphs for thermofluid processes and systems using the true power variables of temperature and time rate of change of entropy. This paper summarizes results of the study. Discussion begins with the study of a simple case of single phase incompressible fluid flow and ends with a completely general case of multiphase, variable density flow. Variations in density require introduction of the momentum equation to the bond graph. Inclusion of entropy as a state variable necessitates the use of Gibb’s equation and its representation by means of bond graphs. This paper presents these formulations and representations, and compares dynamic results predicted by bond graphs with those of classical approaches.
