...Brandon M. Kilbourne; Emanuel Andrada; Martin S. Fischer; John A. Nyakatura ABSTRACT Differing limb proportions in terms of length and mass, as well as differences in mass being concentrated proximally or distally, influence the limb's moment of inertia (MOI), which represents its resistance...

... substrates. We quantified morphology using the polar moment of inertia, a parameter used in calculating kinetic energy that describes shell area distribution and resistance to rotation. We quantified mussel locomotion by determining the ratio of rotational ( K rot ) to translational kinetic energy ( K trans...

... this prediction by examining shell morphology and growth rate of quagga mussels collected from shallow and deep habitats and reared under common-garden treatments that manipulated the three variables. Shell morphology was quantified using the polar moment of inertia. Of the variables tested, temperature had...

...Mikael Thollesson; Ulla M. Norberg ABSTRACT The moments of inertia of the wings about the shoulder joint and about the roll axis were estimated in eight species of bats, using strip analysis. The moment of inertia of the bat’s trunk about the roll axis was estimated by assuming the body and head...

...Sean J. Kirkpatrick ABSTRACT The moment of inertia of a wing about its proximal end must be known in order to calculate the inertial torque and power required during flapping flight ( Ellington, 1984 ) and it is also one of the morphological features that affects flapping frequency ( Pennycuick...
