Torque

Kinetics • study of the relationship between the forces acting on a system and the motion of the system Angular Motion (Rotation) • All points in an object or system move in a circle about a single axis of rotation. All points move through the same angle in the same time Linear Kinetics • The kinetics of particles, objects, or systems undergoing rotation

Objectives: • Define angular kinetics • Define and learn to compute moment arms, torque, and resultant torques • Introduction to resultant joint torques, anatomical torque descriptions, and force couples

Torque (or Moment)

• A measure of the extent to which a force will cause an object to rotate about a specific axis • A net force applied through the center of mass produces translation • A net force applied away from the center of mass (i.e. an eccentric force) produces both translation and rotation

Line of Action

• The line of action of a force is the imaginary line that extends from the force vector in both directions

Moment Arm

• Shortest distance from a force’s line of action to the axis of rotation • Moment arm is always perpendicular to the line of action and passes through the axis of rotation

line of action of F moment arm of F 90°

**Computing a Moment Arm
**

• Need to know: – distance (d) from axis of rotation to point at which force is applied – angle (θ) at which force is applied • Use trigonometry to compute moment arm (d⊥)

d⊥ = d sin θ F

Computing Torque

• Torque has: – a magnitude – a direction (+ or –) – a specific axis of rotation • The magnitude of the torque (T) produced by a force is the product of the force’s magnitude (F) times the force’s moment arm (d⊥):

d θ d⊥= d sin θ

d⊥ = d

d⊥ = d sin θ

Direction of a Torque

• Positive torque : acts counterclockwise about the axis of rotation. • Negative torque : acts clockwise about the axis • Determine direction using the right hand rule: – Place right hand on force vector, fingers towards arrow tip – Curl fingers around axis of rotation – Torque acts in direction that fingers are curled

Example Problem #1

Shown below are 4 muscles acting across a joint. Which muscles have the largest and smallest force? moment arm? torque magnitude?

Torque Composition

• Process of determining a single resultant (or net) torque from two or more torques. • Performed by adding the torques together, taking the sign (direction) of the torque into account • Resultant torque has same effect on rotation as the individual torques acting together

**Resultant Joint Torque
**

• The effects of all forces acting about a joint can be duplicated exactly by the combination of: – A resultant joint force acting at the joint center – A resultant joint torque acting about the axis of rotation through the joint center • Resultant joint force is the vector composition of all forces acting across a joint. • Resultant joint torque is the composition of the torques produced about the joint axis by these forces. • Note: Forces that do not act across the joint (e.g. weight) are not included in the resultant joint force or torque.

**Use of Resultant Joint Torque
**

• Typically, joint contact force, muscle forces, ligament forces, etc. cannot be determined individually • We can compute resultant joint forces and torques based on data measured external to the body • Except near the limits of the anatomical range of motion, the main contributors to the resultant joint torque are the muscles • The resultant joint torque provides a simplified picture of which muscle groups are most active about a joint

Example Problem #2

Shown is a forearm with 2 elbow flexors and 1 elbow extensor. Find the resultant joint torque for the 3 combinations of forces shown in the table:

30° 0.025 m 0.05 m 0.10 m

Force Couple

• For pure rotation about the center of mass, the center of mass must remain stationary from Newton’s 1st law, the net force on the object must equal zero • Force couple : Two forces of equal magnitude, applied in opposite directions. Produce pure rotation about the center of mass.

Anatomical Torques

• Positive & negative torques depend on frame of reference chosen:

• To avoid this problem, joint torques are typically described by the joint motion that would occur if the segment moved in the direction of the torque (e.g. Fquad produces a knee extension torque)
