Thread: Irregular Shaped trans iso Mooney-Rivlin Muscle Contraction

    Default Irregular Shaped trans iso Mooney-Rivlin Muscle Contraction

    Hi all,

    I'm relatively new to FEBio and PreVIEW and I was hoping someone could provide some assistance on how to correctly define muscle for a trans iso Mooney-Rivlin material (Genioglossus muscle for the tongue with prescribed trans iso active contractions). The units for my material were (I thought) consistent but unfortunately it won't solve. It has correctly terminated the solving procedure in the past however the results seemed questionable based on what the expected motion would be. I'd be happy to provide more information if necessary since as I've explained it above may be difficult to understand. (Also I can't make the uncoupled solid mixture display material fibers)

    Any help is appreciated.

    PreView doesn't support visualization of fibers that are defined on components of mixtures. It only displays the fibers of the top-level material. We can look into expanding this capability if you still have a need for this. If so, please make a feature request in the PreView Projects forum.
