  • This article presents an educational software called BONDSYM developed to allow engineering students to learn easily and quickly about the analysis of dynamic systems through the Bond Graph method. This software
    uses the SIMULINK library of MATLAB, which has proven to be an
    excellent choice in order to implement and solve the dynamic equations
    involved. The application allows for the representation of the behavior
    of a dynamic system analyzed through the Bond Graph theory in order to
    understand the dynamic equations and the physical phenomena involved.
    Based on block diagram of SIMULINK, the different "bonds" of Bond Graph
    can be integrated as SIMULINK blocks in order to generate the dynamic
    model. A few simple models are analyzed through this application.
