Hi Biomch-l,

My name is Arne Berger, I am a student majoring mechanical engineering at
the RWTH Aachen (Germany) and actually I do a student research project at
the POSTECH university in Pohang (South Korea).

For this project I actually investigate the behavior of human arm muscles
when applying high accelerations toward the longitudinal axis of the arm to
it. The arm's longitudinal axis is orthographical to the body's
longitudinal axis.
The aim is to find out, how fast human arm muscles can generate a
conditional reaction and with which force-over-time curve. I searched
several databases in the web, books and journals but I couldn't found exact

Who can please point me to some data sheets related with arm muscle
responses to high accelerations?

Thank you in advance
Arne Berger
