Published: 22 February 2023
... appendages in tetrapod vertebrates. These tools span a spectrum from more empirical approaches such as XROMM, to potentially more intermediate approaches such as finite element analysis, to more theoretical approaches such as dynamic musculoskeletal simulations or conceptual models. These methods have much...

... forces. Through integration of a large kinematic dataset, measurements of elastic recoil, energetic math modeling and dynamic math modeling, we tested how trap-jaw ants ( Odontomachus brunneus ) utilize multiple elastic structures to develop ultrafast and precise mandible rotations at small scales. We...

...Peter C. Raffalt; Jenny A. Kent; Shane R. Wurdeman; Nick Stergiou ABSTRACT During locomotion, humans change gait mode between walking and running as locomotion speed is either increased or decreased. Dynamical systems theory predicts that the self-organization of coordinated motor behaviors...

...Daniel I. Goldman; Tao S. Chen; Daniel M. Dudek; Robert J. Full SUMMARY Rapid, vertically climbing cockroaches produced climbing dynamics similar to geckos, despite differences in attachment mechanism, `foot or toe'morphology and leg number. Given the common pattern in such diverse species,we...

... protrusions. We present a simple mechanosensory model for the task-level dynamics of wall following. In the model a torsional, mass-damper system describes the cockroach's turning dynamics, and a simplified antenna measures distance from the cockroach's centerline to a wall. The model predicts...

... for effective vertical as well as horizontal locomotion. No general dynamic model of legged climbing exists. By contrast, a single mass-spring model of level running captures the dynamics of two-, four-, six-and eight-legged pedestrians differing greatly in phylogeny and morphology( Blickhan and Full, 1993...

The pattern of leg ground reaction forces observed may provide passive, dynamic stability while minimizing joint moments, yet allow high...

The effect of these simplifications on the accuracy of predicted dynamics has not been examined in detail. We conduct...
