The objective of this study is to establish a methodology to identify the dynamic properties of soft tissues. Nineteen in vitro impact tests are performed on human muscles at three average strain rates ranging from 136/s to 262/s. Muscle tissues are compressed uniaxially up to 50% strain level. Subsequently, finite element simulations replicating the experimental conditions are executed using the PAM-CRASH TM , explicit finite element solver. The material properties of the muscles, modelled asdoi:10.4271/2006-01-0252 fatcat:jzkdf3r2dfewrnvlhslyn6a6ju
