A method of using directed linear graphs for the determination of reaction forces in dynamic mechanical systems is developed. The method is compatible with other more classical techniques for calculating reaction forces and results in a more efficient computational approach than alternative methods. Example problems are discussed and analyzed using these topological techniques.
