Mechanical modeling of skeletal muscle functioning.


Linden, Bart Jochem Julius Joost van der (1998) Mechanical modeling of skeletal muscle functioning. thesis.

Abstract:For movement of body or body segments is combined effort needed of the central nervous system and the muscular-skeletal system. This thesis deals with the mechanical functioning of skeletal muscle. That muscles come in a large variety of geometries, suggest the existence of a relation between muscle morphology and the ability to exert force. Models are utilized to gather detailed knowledge about the way muscle work, i.e. the heuristic approach and to some extent to predict muscle force under specific conditions.
