don't worry. We can make two different classes, One for each formula,
and let the user choose which damping he wants to use.

We could even add some other damping methods, so that the choice will
be even bogger.

So if you find the early papers of Cundall, then maybe you will have
some idea on how to call the second class.

We will just write in the yade manual, that there are several damping
methods available, write formula for each of them, and let the user
choose. I'm sure we will write this manual, when I will come to
Grenoble in several months, right? :)
