The following is a list of necessary, but not sufficient, questi= ons for evaluating your simulation. You may not be able to answer "yes" to = all of these questions, but if the answer is "no", you should be able to pr= ovide a plausible explanation to convince yourself (and reviewers) that you= r results are meaningful.

- If you are using any coordinates from a motion capture system, do the d= efinitions match your model?
- Is the maximum marker error for bony landmarks and functional joint cen= ters less than 2 cm?
- Is the RMS error less than ~1 cm?
- Do the joint coordinates in the static pose match your knowledge about = experimental data collection (comparison to photos, etc.)?

- If you are using any coordinates from a motion capture system, do the d= efinitions match your model?
- Is the maximum marker error less than 4 cm?
- Is the RMS error less than ~2 cm?
- Is there data for similar motions in the literature or other past studi= es? Are your results within 1 standard deviation?

- Are there any large or unexpected forces at the pelvis (how large)?
- Is there data for similar motions in the literature or from other past = studies? Are your results within 1 standard deviation?

- Are there any large or unexpected residual actuator forces?
- Find EMG or muscle activation data for comparison with your simulated a= ctivations. Do the timings of muscle activations/deactivations match? Are t= he magnitudes and patterns in good agreement?

- Is the RMS difference between experimental and simulated joint angles l= ess than 2-5=C2=BA (or less than 2 cm for translations)?
- Are the peak residual forces less than 10-25 N? Are the RMS residu= al forces less than 5-15 N?
- Are the peak residual moments less than 75 Nm? Are the RMS residua= l moments less than 50 Nm?
- Are the residual moments reduced 30-50% compared to inverse dynamics?
- Is there joint torque data for similar motions in the literature or fro= m other past studies? Are your results within 1 standard deviation?

- Are the peak reserve actuator torques less than 10% of the correspondin= g peak joint torques?
- Is the RMS difference between experimental and simulated joint angles l= ess than 2-5=C2=BA (or less than 2 cm for translations)?
- Are the peak residual forces less than 10-20 N? Are the average re= sidual forces less than 5-10 N?
- Are the peak residual moments less than 75 Nm? Are the average res= idual moments less than 50 Nm?
- Find EMG or muscle activation data for comparison with your simulated a= ctivations. Do the timings of muscle activations/deactivations match? Are t= he magnitudes and patterns in good agreement?
