  • Re: Modeling Tendons

    Dear List members,

    I am interested in the dynamic response of tendon (human or other =
    species) and wanted to compil
    some papers on this topics. Does anyone have few references on this as =
    I have an entry key to develop my knowledge on tendon behavior !


    Thanks for all these answers !
    I also have some papers in PDF. People interested just have to ask !

    You should have a look at the book of YC Fung, Biomechanics: Mechanical
    Properties of Living Tissues and the paper by Zajac FE (1989) Muscle and
    tendon: properties, models, scaling, and application to biomechanics and
    motor control. In Bourne, J.R. (ed.): CRC Critical Rev in Biomed Eng.,
    vol. 17 (#4), 359-411.
