### Bondgraph modeling of thermo-fluid systems

ME270 Fall 2007

Stephen Moore

Professor Granda

Introduction
• Study of thermofluid bondgraphs
• Series of three thermofluid bondgraph example models
• Heat transfer- Conduction
• Incompressible flow
• Compressible flow
• To gain knowledge of bondgraph modeling of thermofluid systems

Heat transfer
• Resistance is thermal
• T- temperature
• - heat flow
• - entropy flow
• Pseudo bonds
• T * ≠ Power

Note: Refer to Figure 12.1, “System Dynamics”

Heat transfer
• Related equations
• H- heat conduction coefficient
• R is a function of the average to maintain linearity
Heat transfer
• Results
• Differential equations in Matlab are developed from momentum and displacement- I and C elements
• Simulink used to display results

T1 = 373K, T2 = 273K

hGW = 0.037 W/mK

hAl = 237 W/mK

• Incompressible, one-dimensional flow
• Model gives estimate of the time it takes to empty a tank

“System Dynamics”

-Volumetric flow rate out of the tank

-Rate of pressure momentum in the pipe

Rb- Bernoulli resistance of pipe

Indicates a loss of kinetic energy as the fluid leaves the system

Difficult to accurately determine without experimental data

C - capacitance of the tank

I – inertia of the flow

Tank emptying
System parameters

Air cylinder

Note: Refer to Figure 12.17, “System Dynamics”

P1

The single R element with 4 bonds requires 16 values

Two C elements 4 bonds each require 18 values

The values are approximate values

Air cylinder
The working fluid:

Air at 25oC and 100 KPa

Cp - 1005 N-m/Kg K

Cv - 718 N-m/Kg K

Volume - 0.012272 m3

Mass – 0.014253 Kg

Lower chamber is empty

Upper chamber is full

Geometry:

Cylindrical chamber

0.25 m diameter

0.25 m height

Mass cylinder is 3.4 kg

Applied force

25 N upward

Air cylinder
Air cylinder
• Results
• Volume in upper and lower chambers
• Expect upper chamber to decrease volume and lower chamber to increase volume with time
Air cylinder
• Results
• Pressures in upper and lower chambers
• Expect pressure in the upper chamber to increase while the lower chamber decreases
Results

Mass flow in the chambers

Expect mass flow out of the upper chamber and into the lower chamber

Air cylinder
• The model worked, however, the results obtained are incorrect
• The values of the R-field and C-field are based on rough approximations
• More work is required to adequately model the air cylinder
Conclusion
• Thermofluid bondgraphs are significantly different than typical bondgraphs
• Care must be taken to ensure the correct parameters are chosen for C, I and R elements, especially for R-fields, C-fields and I-fields
• Expect most thermofluid bondgraphs to represent non-linear systems
• CampG and Matlab obtains the differential equations easily.
