In our lab we performed 3D computer simulations of human jaw movements.
The moments of inertia were approximated from a preparation of the
mandible including adhering soft tissue. You may find the procedure,as
well as the results in: J.H. Koolstra and T.M.G.J. van Eijden,
Biomechanical analysis of Jaw-closing movements, Journal of Dental
Research 74:1564-1570 (1995). If you are not able to find a copy of this
paper I will gladly send you a reprint.
