ME 457: Mechatronic System Modeling & Simulation
Problem Set #2.
(2.1)
Do text problem 43(a). Make a free body diagram, make a bond graph model, and
generate a set of equations.
(2.2)
Do text problem 43(b). Make a free body diagram, make a bond graph model, and
generate a set of equations.
(2.3)
Do text problem 43(g). Make a free body diagram, make a bond graph model, and
generate a set of equations.

Consider the "quartercar" model shown in Figure 21 below. The vector "g" denotes
the effect of gravity. The variable
y
gnd
(yground) denotes the elevation of the road
surface as a function of time, as the car travels along the road. Assume that
is
measured in an inertial reference frame. Note that the car has vertical and
horizontal motion. The horizontal motion is an input for our study.
