Numerical models of the human masticatory system were constructed using algorithms which minimized non-linear functions of the muscle forces or the joint loads. However, the predicted solutions for isometric biting were critically dependent upon the modelled angular freedom of the joint loads. The most complete mathematical minimization of any objective function occurs when the joint load angles are predicted. However, the predictions have to be sensible in relation to the actual morphology of… CONTINUE READING
