We are interested in the architectural propeties of
the quadriceps and hamstring muscles. In particular
the effect that muscle pennation angle, physiological
cross-sectional and fibre length have on force
velocity characteristics.

An initial search of the literature has revealed
little information on theses issues, particularly with
regard to the hamstrings.

I would be grateful to receive any suggetions from
colleaagues working in this field.

Thanks in advance
