The Navy's leadership is looking at improving quantify of life and reducing long term health problems through the reduction of knee disorders. One proposal for reducing knee disorders is to install more compliant decking The goal of this thesis is to develop a computer model of the human gait that estimates the transarticulation forces in the knee during walking on various surfaces. This model can he used to evaluate the reduction of the heel strike forces during walking when deck surface modifications are made. Previous analytical and computer models of the human gait are reviewed. The major contribution of this thesis is a detailed dynamic model of foot-ground interaction daring the initial phase of load hearing in human gait.
