The optimal elbow angle for acrobatics - stability analysis of the elbow with a load
presentationposted on 2023-06-07, 21:26 authored by Peter GieslPeter Giesl
We consider a human elbow with a load and study the existence and stability of equilibrium positions without the use of reflexes. We observe that for each elbow angle there is a critical mass above which the equilibrium becomes unstable. We determine the optimal elbow angle, i.e., the angle such that the corresponding critical mass is as high as possible.
