I am investigating the changing coefficient of friction and friction
force in the knee joint for a class project. Unfortunately, I have been
unable to find sufficient research data.

Does anyone know where I might find a graph of friction coefficient vs.
load or friction coefficient as a function of position in the gait cycle
for the human knee? Suggested references would be very helpful.

My library searches thus far have only turned up such data for the hip
joint. Where would I find a relatively simple model for friction in the

Please send replies to pham0015@gold.tc.umn.edu
