In this paper, a new analytical approach to object oriented modeling is presented for the predesign of a multibody system. We investigate the dynamic behavior of a system of interconnected components using the modeling language Modelica. In engineering, beam-masses are often used as design models. In fact, the considered system is composed of a flexible beam subjected to a moving load and supporting one or more translating elastic subsystems. Each subsystem is controlled by a vibration absorber and the structure is affected dynamically only through the moving character of the load. The problem of calculation of the dynamic response of this system is very important in many engineering applications such as in the predesign and analysis of a robotic portal systems, machine tools and bridge crane systems. The object oriented modeling approach will be presented to demonstrate the importance of this approach to parametric investigation. It will illustrate how subsystems from Modelica Standard Library can be connected to the developed structure in order to study the vibrational behavior of such a system. For validation purpose, results are compared with those reported in the literature.
