View Full Version : Metabolic energy models

Dear All,

I am interested in modelling the relationship between metabolic energy
requirement and mechanical energy output in muscles. There's plenty of data on
time averaged mechanical efficiency and there are a number of models that look
at the various force/length/velocity/power relationships, but the ones I have
encountered don't seem to incorporate instantaneous measures of metabolic
efficiency. I hope that someone more in tune with the vast muscular physiology
literature can point me to some work on this (either theoretical or empirical)

Any and all help appreciated.
