Stair descent physics

  1. Jan 4, 2017 #1
    I am working on some litigation support tasking and need to illustrate, utilizing stick figures and some basic applied physics, to explain the act of walking down a staircase and how a divergent stair riser may affect the stride of a human descending the stairs...I have seen illustrations in publications previously and cannot remember where, does anyone have an article and/or illustration utilized in one of your lectures or classes to share?

    Thank you this was very helpful additionally a very good collection of illustrations on the biomechanics of stair traversing! I am so glad to have found this sight and I hope I may be helpful to other fellow members in the future!
