    The aim of the present thesis was to study systematically the impact of history dependent effects in intact muscles. For this purpose, experiments were performed on in situ medial gastrocnemius (GM) and soleus (SOL) muscles of the rat. Furthermore, mathematical muscle models were developed that describe history dependent effects.
