I had a question regarding the Any2Fea script, and how the radius of influence is calculated. The documentation says that the default value is 1cm. However, I observed that the influence of radius in the Abaqus file generated has different values depending on the muscle group.
*coupling, constraint name=CON_Leg_Mus_BicepsFemorisCaputLongum1_1, ref node=NS_Leg_Mus_BicepsFemorisCaputLongum1_1, surface=anybodysurface, influence radius=0.012239
*distributing, weighting method=UNIFORM
I was wondering what is the logic behind -
- Any2Fea choosing the influence of radius
- How the user should alter it.
Also, does the mesh size of the tibia used in the stl file (since this is a subject specific tibia) affect the influence of radius.
