If the spring supplies a restoring force proportional to its elongation and the dashpot (electromagnetic damper) provides a force which opposes motion of the mass proportional to its velocity, then the system response is proportional to the excitation, and the system is said to be linear [29, 30].
When the maximal principal network stretch ratio exceeds this value the dashpot solidifies ([gamma] = [infinity]).

Springs, dashpots, and spring-dashpot combinations are used to represent superelasticity (SE), the shape memory effect (SME), and the SE-SME combination, respectively.
In addition, the haptic devices were "connected" to the virtual object through a spring dashpot, detracting from the realism of the contact forces experienced during manipulation.
The SLS model consists of a spring in series with a dashpot and in parallel with another spring, resulting in three unknown parameters.
