Scaling Functional Patterns of Skeletal and Cardiac Muscles: New Non-linear Elasticity Approach


. Abstract: Responding mechanically to environmental requests, muscles show a surprisingly large variety of functions. The studies of in vivo cycling muscles qualified skeletal muscles into four principal locomotor patterns: motor, brake, strut, and spring. While much effort of has been done in searching for muscle design patterns, no fundamental concepts… (More)
