The development, validation and application of a simulation model of active skeletal muscle

Murray-Smith, D.J. (1994) The development, validation and application of a simulation model of active skeletal muscle. In: 1st Joint Conference of International Simulation Societies, Zurich, Switzerland, 22-25 Aug 1994, pp. 600-604.

The modelling and computer simulation of active skeletal muscle is of potential importance for studies of the neuromuscular control system. A nonlinear simulation model has been developed from published physiological data obtained from relatively simple measurements. Validation of the nonlinear model and investigation of model deficiencies has involved parameter sensitivity analysis methods. A linearised version of the model has been developed for use in connection with investigations of tremor phenomena.
