Calculating maximum model strength

When working with subject specific scaling of models, it can be a valuable tool to know what the strength of your model is for a given posture. With strength we mean the maximum permissible load that the model can carry in a given posture. This post will show you a way of calculating the maximum strength of a simple 2D arm model in various postures. The concepts presented can of course be extended to models involving the full body model or parts of it.
