A slightly restricted simple two-link, two-degree-of-freedom mathematical model for the overall motion of a Slinky[R] as it walks down stairs, tumbling end over end, including a rotational spring and rotational dashpot at the hinge that connected the massless rigid coil, with equal point masses at both ends of each round, has been recently published and solved numerically (Hu, 2010).
The viscous model is the classical formulation known as the Maxwell material, which is constructed by a spring and a dashpot in serial.

These features include an oil dashpot inside the clutch, continuously supplied with oil from the lubrication system, to "cushion" clutch engagement under high relative acceleration conditions and to prevent disengagement under transient negative torque conditions.
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.
