Ligament pre-strain?

Hello AnyBody,

I wonder if ligament pre-strain was previously implemented in any of the models in the repository?

Kind regards,

Riza Bayoglu.

Hi Riza Bayoglu,

I’m not sure which area you are interested in the implementation of the ligament.

By the way, you can use AnyForce object to define your own force element which can be the function of the position and the velocity of any kinematic measures.

So based on that concept, you can also implement the pre-strain(or pre-loaded force) of the ligament.

Best regards,
