Several types of analyses in biomechanics require estimates of both muscle force and stiffness. Simulations were performed using the two-state cross-bridge Bond Distribution-Moment muscle model of Zahalak (1981), together with other parameters for passive elasticity and tendon compliance, to estimate instantaneous stiffness and to compare these estimates with the wide range of values reported in the literature. While the relatively simple cross-bridge theory appears to approximate the stiffness… CONTINUE READING
