The system model of a complex multiple degree of freedom mechanical device containing external loads, masses, springs, and dashpots is obtained explicitly in terms of the kinematic influence coefficients given in the companion paper, Part I. The controlling nonlinear coupled differential equations can be obtained by an elementary power balance in terms of this model. The formulation should be effective in developing a qualitative description of complex dynamic systems to treat their dynamic response, vibration, or automatic control during adjustment.
