Better ask Frederic about that. I got the formulas from him, and it
was implemented under guidance of Frederic. I think that no-one else
knows what is better. (mean value, or min value).

you can even reanme the class into ElastoPlasticContactLaw :) We want
the most descriptive names as possible. To do that start from this command:

./yade-scripts/renameClassFirst ElasticContactLaw ElastoPlasticContactLaw

then follow the instructions written by the scrtipts.
