Evaluate max external loading

Evaluate max external loading#

This model shows how to use the EvaluateMaxLoad class-template to estimate the maximum loading where MaxMuscleActivity reaches 1.

The EvaluateMaxLoad needs to have a argument with the study, as well as pointer to the variable which controls the loading. The variable can be anything, as long as it controls some external force or moment on the model.

In this example we use the EvaluateMaxLoad class-template to evalate the maximum torque the model can provide at every timestep in the study.


The tool asumes a linear relationship betweeen the external load and the maximum muscle activity. This is almost always the case, but it is woth considering if this assumption holds. See this blog post for more details.
