Title Limb Inertial Properties of Individual Limbs from Sampled Mammals
Downloaded 66 times
Description Spreadsheet containing data on limb mass, length, center of mass position, moment of inertia, natural frequency, and radius of gyration of individual limbs for each specimen sampled. Within the file, 'COM' denotes center of mass position, 'MOI' denotes moment of inertia, 'NF' denotes natural frequency, and 'RG' denotes radius of gyration. 'Rel. COM' denotes the relative center of mass position, the center of mass position expressed as a percentage of limb length. Likewise, 'Rel. RG' denotes relative radius of gyration, the radius of gyration expressed as a percentage of limb length.

Title Mean Values of Limb Inertial Properties for Sampled Species
Downloaded 80 times
Description Spreadsheet containing mean values of inertial properties for each sampled species, in addition to mean values of body mass. These values were used in our analyses. Within the file, 'COM' denotes center of mass position, 'MOI' denotes moment of inertia, 'NF' denotes natural frequency, and 'RG' denotes radius of gyration. 'Rel. COM' denotes the relative center of mass position, the center of mass position expressed as a percentage of limb length. Likewise, 'Rel. RG' denotes relative radius of gyration, the radius of gyration expressed as a percentage of limb length.
