I need to identify software in which I can model the trajectory of a human being falling within a complex structure - e.g. as if someone is falling from a tree and hits a series of branches on the way down. Active participation by the human would be irrelevant. Is there such software?

    What level of detail do you want in the motion of body parts (or can that just be a point mass)? What price? What OS? – user416 Apr 1 '19 at 13:28
  • Do you want to visualize it realistically? Then a gaming engine would be feasible. For doing predictions ("these data from our motion capture sensors could reflect a human body falling through trees"): you could do this for instance in Matlab. By the way I wonder where you might get training datasets from ;-) – knb Apr 1 '19 at 13:43
  • I think that there would have to be a reasonable amount of detail - a spherical object, for instance, would interact with the structure in a way that a limbed object would not. Price would be irrelevant as would the OS. I think visualisation would be useful to convince a (non-mathematically inclined) customer ;-) – Phil Parry Apr 1 '19 at 13:57
  • I seen some interesting video on youtube for an incoming software cascadeur but is still closed beta (you can try to apply) – Alex Apr 1 '19 at 22:31
