Default Muscle activity - HELP

Dear AnyBody,
I would like to ask you for some information about an muscle model in AMS for my diploma thesis. It is quite important.

I mean AnyMuscleModel3E.
Is it possible to find somewhere the relationship between force and deformation in this type of muscle? And a relationship with muscle activity? How this program count the muscle activity during movement?
Or is it a big know how (black box), which you canīt tell me?

I tried to find something about it online, but I wasnīt successful.

Please help me, if you can.

Dear Veronika,

Please check this link for the description of the 3-element muscle implementation with references to the original papers by Hill.

You could also read in a number of papers (sort by methods and scroll down) how muscle activations are computed - in brief, an optimization problem is solved, where depending on the chosen criterion muscles replicate one of the physiological strategies. Have a look at "An efficient numerical algorithm for solving the muscle recruitment problem in inverse dynamics simulations".

Kind regards,
