Bond graphs offer a simple, efficient method for developing models of physical (e.g., mechanical, electrical, thermal, fluid), chemical, economic, and other types of systems. They are a communication device that can be easily interpreted by workers with differing technical and mathematical backgrounds, thereby facilitating interdisciplinary discussion and exchange of information. This paper provides a quick introduction to bond graphs with examples and references.
