A considerable research has been carried out in the field of Cross-Flow Induced Vibrations (CFIV) in tube bundles of process exchangers and nuclear steam generators. Various excitation mechanisms such as vortex shedding, turbulent buffeting, fluid-elastic instability and acoustic resonance and other parameters like natural frequencies, damping, wear work rates at the loose tube supports and various geometric tube arrangements have been the focus in single and two-phase cross-flow. In the current research work, CFIV has been studied by using Bondgraph approach. The Bondgraph models have been subjected to simulation using the software (20-SIM). Results obtained have shown a strong usefulness of Bondgraph approach to complex CFIV systems.
