A finite lump pseudo bond graph scheme for isothermal and isentropic pipe flows of ideal gas is developed on the basis of the governing differential equations and an assumption of staggered spatial profiles for the variables. Element constitutive relationships are formally derived. A new CONVECTANCE element is defined to model convective acceleration. The bond graph is simple and convenient to use.
