Multibody distributed dynamic systems are seen in many engineering applications. Developed in this investigation is a new analytical method for a class of branched multibody distributed systems, which is called the augmented distributed transfer function (DTFM). This method adopts an augmented state formulation to describe the interactions among multiple distributed and lumped bodies, which resolves the problems with conventional transfer function methods in modeling and analysis of multibody distributed systems. As can be seen, the augmented DTFM, without the need for orthogonal system eigenfunctions, produces exact and closed-form solutions of various dynamic problems, in both frequency and time domains.
