View Full Version : Eccentric Component in Landing

10-02-2001, 03:50 AM
Dear Group

I am a graduate student at the University of Tennessee in biomechanics. I am
currently working on my thesis. I am trying to develop a muscle model for the
triceps surae muscle-tendon complex applied to landing. I am using Maarten
Bobbert's paper as a guide. However I am having difficulty with the eccentric
component of the model. When graphing out the Force-velocity curve much like
Nigg and Herzogg did in their book, the eccentric component of the graph is
quite strange. Thus, my question and call for help is to anyone who could give
me a lead on some literature dealing with this problem.
