muscle force

in anybody repository, the muscles, for example soleus medialis was modeled with 3 pieces soleus medialis 1 2 3 respectively, I want know if I want to know the total force of soleus medialis, should I add them together? especially when three pieces share the same force with variation of time, should I triple it?


The short answer is yes, you should sum them.

The muscles in AnyBody are usually separated in several bundles to represent a large attachment site. And the strength applied to each bundle is the one of the whole muscle divided by the number of bundles. So in order to see the pulling force of the whole soleus medialis muscle, you have to sum the forces of the 3 parts.
