Re: about "simple spring"
Sorry for late reply. I was busy finishing my PhD (that of course
uses yade for calculations). Now I will be able to answer all the
accumulated posts on yade-users ;)

This is a vague question. Simple spring is a Discrete Element Method,
although a different one than ElasticContactLaw. The contact
detection is similar, first sorts all AxisAlignedBoundigBox-es, and
then checks if the volumes are overlapping. Later checks radius and
box. The method for calculating sphere and a rotated box overlap is a
bit long as you can see in the source.
