|This thesis has been written to demonstrate the development of a Knowledge-
Based Engineering (KBE) application of the musculoskeletal system of the human
body. One of the main goals has been to establish what advantages musculoskeletal
modeling could have in a KBE modeling framework.
The model has been created in Adaptive Modeling Language (AML) developed
by Technosoft to show how a multibody model of the human anatomy can be
modeled in a nite element representation. Furthermore, the possibilities of using
the AML models to perform simulations in the multibody software Fedem are
In summary, the goal of this thesis is to develop a conceptual AML model
of the human skeleton for future development along with a potential framework
for simulations. The challenge is to model the cross eld of bio-mechanics and
mechanical engineering, to discover possible alternative applications of AM that
could benet musculoskeletal modeling.
