Abstract

The musculotendon dynamics and neurophysiological control of movement are incorporated into a continuum analysis of bone in order to show how the effects of muscular control bear upon predictions of failure or damage in skeletal members. A 3-dimensional `forward' dynamical musculoskeletal segmented model of gait is developed and implemented in order to model the flow of neural-to-muscular-to-skeletal events that result in limb movement. Direct dynamics provides instantaneous information about the direction and magnitude of muscular forces, muscle lengths, net moments at joints and joint reaction forces. The interrelationships between neural controls, applied muscle forces and the resulting motions of body segments are then incorporated.
