The University of Delaware exists to cultivate learning, develop knowledge and foster the free exchange of ideas. State-assisted yet privately governed, the University has a strong tradition of distinguished scholarship, research, teaching and service that is grounded in a commitment to increasing and disseminating scientific, humanistic and social knowledge for the benefit of the larger society.
The SPAN source code is intended to facilitate dynamic optimization using a global search strategy on a computer cluster. Source code is provided as well as a simple application on a geometric problem. SPAN has also been applied to solve for muscle excitations during pedaling and walking (Higginson et al., 2006).
Keywords: musculoskeletal simulation, Optimization, source code
This project involves the generation of subject-specific simulations of a range of post-stroke hemiparetic gait patterns, contribution of parallel optimization techniques, comparison of control algorithms, and analysis of 2D and 3D results.
Keywords: gait, model dimensionality, muscle function, sensitivity analysis, stroke
