High-frequency vibrations e.g., induced by legs impacting with the ground during terrestrial locomotion can provoke damage within tendons even leading to ruptures. So far, macroscopic Hill-type muscle models do not account for the observed high-frequency damping at low-amplitudes. Therefore, former studies proposed that protective damping might be explained(More)
Quasi-elastic operation of joints in multi-segmented systems as they occur in the legs of humans, animals, and robots requires a careful tuning of leg properties and geometry if catastrophic counteracting operation of the joints is to be avoided. A simple three-segment model has been used to investigate the segmental organization of the leg during repulsive(More)
