Validation of a Load Carriage Simulation

This paper presents a validation study of a physics-based simulation of human walking. We simulated four different subjects walking on the level with nine different backpacks. Compared against experimental data of subjects under the same conditions, simulation results are shown to predict peak ground reaction forces, joint angles, and the subjects’ adjustment to lean angle necessary to dynamically balance the load and achieve stable walking at 1.4 m/s.
