The integral display gives a readout of peak force (in tension, compression or flexure), elongation, TEA and the calculated statistics of mean, standard deviation, etc.
Generally, the effects of repeated jump test efforts are reduced peak force, decreased knee and ankle stiffness, reduced flight-time, and increased ground-time (Comyns et al.
A good agreement between experimental and computed F-d curves is achieve until the peak force (simulations performed assuming an adhesive contact between striker and plate that seems to be acceptable according to experimental failure modes).
The frequency of the damped oscillations, which increases from about 7 Hz in pre-rigor carcasses to about 15 Hz in post-rigor carcasses, and the time taken for the first peak force of the oscillations to be generated, are a function of the stiffness of the carcass.
