Dear Biomch-L Colleagues,

Last week I posted a request for information regarding a 2D dynamics program
called
Working Model. My thanks to my colleagues for a quick and informative
response. A number of
people were able to respond with phone and address information. Phone, mail
address, and
Email contact information is listed below. In addition, I received other
responses regarding
experience in using Working Model. Those responses are included as well.

Hi Jody,
Working Model was developed in part by Art Erdman PhD from the University
of Minnesota. I would contact him directly about its capabilities. He is
in the Mechanical Engineering Department. Unfortunately I do not have his
Email address.

Here at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, we have more than one year
of experience in using Working Model to teach the first undergraduate
course in Engineering Mechanics-Dynamics. Working model does a very nice
job in 2-D, rigid-body mechanics We are running it on PCs with 486 or
Pentium microprocessors. We are really sold on the value of working
model. It is extremely easy to use.

We just bought Working Model. It is not bad, though can be a bit slow.
You'll also need to create your own human segments, but it's very flexible.
You can run the simulations from an Excel spreadsheet.
