Mathematical modeling of the response of the human locomotor system subject to the action of disturbing mechanical vibrations
In this paper, we will follow the configuration and development of a physical model in accordance with the main objectives of the study. The model must be useful in estimating the essential dynamic parameters, specific to the response of a multi-body system under the action of intense and varied external dynamic excitations, such as mechanical vibrations produced by different technical systems, indirect and direct interaction with the locomotor system of the human body. In the first stage, a basic configuration will be considered, which will take into account the functionality of the leg - calf- thigh assembly. In the second stage, the model will be harmonized in accordance with the additional restrictions and demands imposed by the muscular system on the skeletal structure of the modeled assembly. The third stage will consist of the comparative evaluation of the simulated answer, with the data obtained that experimental, in order to validate the conformity of the structure and parameters of the proposed model.
