the force of muscles

Hi,
We know that the muscles in AnyBody is divided into some parts, for example of soleus, there is soleus medialis 1.2.3 and soleus lateralis 4.5.6. Now if I want to get the force of soleus, should I add them together?
thank you for your kindly answers:)

Hi,

As you wrote, you can just sum the forces of the individual muscle parts if the directions of those muscle parts are similar.

If you want to see the net effect of those muscle parts, then try to use AnyForceMeasure class.

Here is a wiki link for AnyForceMeasure class:
http://wiki.anyscript.org/index.php/Tips_and_tricks#Measure_the_reaction_force_in_a_joint_in_a_certain_coordinate_system

And you can see its definition on the reference manual.

I hope this may be helpful to you.

Best regards,
Moonki
