Default artificial muscles

Hi,

i have got a question about so called artificial muscles, especially about
Main.HumanModel.BodyModel.Trunk.Buckle.BuckleSuppo rt.Disc1.XPush.ArtificialSupportMuscle

I deactivated the intraabdominal pressure by limiting
Main.HumanModel.BodyModel.Trunk.Buckle.AbdominalPr essureMuscle1 to zero,

but the Artificial muscle still has about 30N. Are these 30N really a mechanical force which would have to be considered in a free body diagram? From where to where is it acting?

Thanks,

Thomaz

Hi Thomaz,

I think the buckle and the intra-abdominal pressure are two different things. The buckle is an artificial segment on the frontal side of the abdomen that provides insertion points for different abdominal muscles. It is not directly related to the intra-abdominal pressure.

Best regards,
John

i see, ok.

Does this mean that the mentioned artificial muscle force is acting on this artificial segment?

Thanks,

Thomaz

Maybe too simple answer is here.

The muscle which you are looking at is:
Main.HumanModel.BodyModel.Trunk.Buckle.BuckleSuppo rt.Disc1.XPush.ArtificialSupportMuscle

And its related linear kinematic measures is related to these reference nodes:
Main.HumanModel.BodyModel.Trunk.Buckle.Disc1.Disc. DiscSeg.node0
Main.HumanModel.BodyModel.Trunk.Buckle.Slider1.Seg


So I think you can try to figure out where these nodes are related to.

Best regards,
Moonki
