Optimal muscle fascicle length and tendon stiffness for maximising gastrocnemius efficiency during human walking and running
Lichtwark GA and Wilson AM. J Theor Biol 2008. PMID 18374362
Muscles generate force to resist gravitational and inertial forces and/or to undertake work, e.g. on the centre of mass. A trade-off in muscle architecture exists in muscles that do both; the fibres should be as short as possible to minimise activation cost but long enough to maintain an appropriate shortening velocity. ...
