An approach to validation of a leg simulation by the comparison of two dynamic
models. Comput. Biol. Med. 25(3):309- 319.
Abstract. The dynamics of a jointed leg were simulated using two different
models, one based on a recursive Newton-Euler method and one on a closed-form
Lagrange method. To validate the models, the simulations were run in parallel
and the intermediate steps and output of the two methods were compared to one
another to reveal the presence and location of errors. Sources of error and the
use of this method for the detection of errors are discussed. Some errors could
not have been detected using only a single simulation.
