This paper discusses an application of dual algebra to the analysis of human knee joint stiffness matrix. According to the proposed methodology, the general stiffness matrix characterizing the elasticity properties of the knee ligaments is reduced to a dual diagonal stiffness matrix. For this purpose, the similarity transform was extended to the field of dual numbers. The theoretical framework proposed seems particularly useful when comparing stiffness matrices obtained from different experimental setup and within different Cartesian coordinate systems.

Abstract

This paper discusses an application of dual algebra to the analysis of human knee joint stiffness matrix. According to the proposed methodology, the general stiffness matrix characterizing the elasticity properties of the knee ligaments is reduced to a dual diagonal stiffness matrix. For this purpose, the similarity transform was extended to the field of dual numbers. The theoretical framework proposed seems particularly useful when comparing stiffness matrices obtained from different experimental setup and within different Cartesian coordinate systems.
