question on damping used for instance in the Triaxial Test. Is it right 
that the solution is affected by the damping? Cause is what happens. 
damping included in the NewIntegrator class acts as a global damping, right? 

If I want to use the local damping I see that I should use the 
ViscousForceDamping class. In such case whatever else should I adopt for the 
part related to the integration algorithm and Newton force law? Cause I see 
that NewtonIntegrator includes everything on this side.
Last question: Should 
the damping helping to reach the equilibrium at each time step? When I include 
the damping should I expect a decreasing in the total number of iterations?

Cheers, Chiara
