Develop a co-simulation framework for the knee in OpenSim.

See the documents section to download a .zip file that contains the OpenSim model, input files, and setup files needed to calculate tibiofemoral contact loads using both a serial and cosimulation approach.

1) To incorporate a detailed knee model in a muscle-actuated forward dynamic simulation of human movement
2) Provide an open-source co-simulation framework for the knee
