A new gluing algorithm is presented that can be used to couple subsystem models for dynamics simulation of mechanical systems. The gluing algorithm developed relies only on information available at the subsystem interfaces. This strategy not only improves the efficiency of the algorithm, but also engenders model security by limiting model access only to the exposed interface information. These features make the algorithm suitable for a real and practical distributed simulation environment.
