Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the behaviour of the human soleus muscle during isometric contraction. A model taking into account the musculoskeletal geometry, the musculotendon architecture and the neural excitation input has been developed. The neural excitation input was simulated using a recruitment and firing rate organisation model. The musculotendon actuator was modelled as a tendon inserted in series with fibres defined by a contractile component in parallel with an elastic component. At …
