muscle simulation

Dear All,

 

Any ideas to simulate full body muscle  - beyond constructing many  line elements   and is, in any case ,  impractical for , say , the heart , or tongue.  For small contracture one can make the brick elements orthotropic thermal  and use a negative alpha.  But this is  "computationally expensive"  and can be applied to only one large muscle, not in situations that have overlapping muscles.

 

What is needed a ( multi ) directional force field applied to internal nodes, .  This can be done in some other FEA packages, but I've not seen a way to do so in Autodesk FEA.  ( Autodesk Maya actually approximates this , but .... )

 

Regards,

PB
