Abstract

The variously motivated requests of biomechanics regarding the simulation and analysis of the human movement and the associated better understanding of mechanisms of the human neuromuscular skeleton system has led to the development of realistic 3D-man models. Biomechanical multibody systems as models for moving biological systems (humans, animals) have to incorporate more difficult system components than technical systems. Among others, the flexibility of the individual body segments due to muscles, tendons, ligaments, organs and body fluids has significant influence. The objective of this work is the parameter identification of these so-called wobbling masses.
