Abstract

With energy flow analysis (sometimes addressed as power flow analysis) is defined the analysis of power transmission within a mechanical system. In literature different formulations for the definition and the estimation of the energy flow are available. The formulation addressed to Goyder and White in 1980 is mostly suited for low frequency analysis and for the analysis of energy flow at interfaces between structures interacting, while the one introduced by Belov and Rybak in 1975 found many applications in combination with the Finite Element Method (FEM) for the high frequency analysis of vibrating systems. Although these formulations are different, in literature both are addressed as energy flow analysis. In this second part of the literature review, a general framework for the methodology introduced by Belov and Rybak, here addressed as volume energy flow analysis, and its combination with FEM, is presented
