Abstract: In this paper, we construct some natural geometrical objects on the $ 1$-jet space $ J^{1}(\mathbb{R},\mathbb{R}^{3})$, like a nonlinear connection, a Cartan linear connection (together with its d-torsions and d-curvatures), a jet ``electromagnetic" d-field and its geometric ``electromagnetic" Yang-Mills energy, starting from a given dynamical system governing the three-dimensional motion of the knee in the mathematical model introduced by Grood and Suntay. The computer-drawn graphics of corresponding Yang-Mills energetic surfaces of constant level (produced by this knee dynamical system) are given.
