.... To test for such mechanisms, we measured drag on models of the limbs of Chilean flamingos ( Phoenicopterus chilensis ) and measured their limb and body kinematics as they walked and waded through increasing depths of water in a zoo enclosure. Substantial drag was incurred by models of both open...

...David J. Ellerby; Richard L. Marsh SUMMARY Although mechanical linkages between the proximal and distal limb are present in a range of species, their functional significance is unknown. We have investigated the mechanical function of the flexor cruris lateralis pars pelvica (FCLP), flexor cruris...

...J. M. Wakeling; O. M. Blake; H. K. Chan SUMMARY The purpose of this study was to determine which features of muscle mechanics and muscle coordination affect the power output from a limb during locomotion. Eight subjects were tested while cycling at maximum exertion for 25 min on a stationary...

... was lower than on the level. On the level, over the range of speeds tested, total force was consistently distributed between the limbs as 57% forelimb and 43%hindlimb, similar to the weight distribution of the horses during static weight tests. On the incline, the force distribution during locomotion...

... braking force while the hindlimb exerts a net propulsive force. Steady speed locomotion requires that braking and propulsion of the stance limbs be equal in magnitude. We predicted that changes in body mass distribution would alter individual limb braking–propulsive force patterns and we tested...
