A state-variable model for skeletal muscle, termed the "Distribution-Moment Model," is derived from A. F. Huxley's 1957 model of molecular contraction dynamics. The state variables are the muscle stretch and the three lowest-order moments of the bond-distribution function (which represent, respectively, the contractile tissue stiffness, the muscle force, and the elastic energy stored in the contractile tissue). The rate equations of the model are solved under various conditions, and compared to… CONTINUE READING
