This report documents the progresses on developing a human biomechanical modeling toolbox during the first phase of the research project. It is separated into two parts. A separate first part consists of an overview of the toolbox, rigid body formulations, and example models and applications. This second part provides detailed description of individual routines in the toolbox. The second chapter describes the data format used in the toolbox. Data IO, conversion and file format routines are listed in the chapter. A graphical editor for editing TMT files, TMTEDITOR, is also developed. Details on TMTEDITOR is given in Appendix A. Chapter three lists routines related to rigid body dynamics, including kinematic calculation, inverse dynamic analysis and forward dynamic simulation. Chapter four provides details of graphical routines, including routines related to the creation and manipulation of 3D graphical objects, user interface handling, animation and other graphical operation. Details on two graphical viewers, xyviewer and stickviewer, can be found in Appendix B and Appendix C respectively. Chapter five describes other utility routines related to mathematical calculation and string manipulation.
