Newton-Raphson iterative method (Bathe [19]) is used to solve the resulting equations to find the current displacement and contact force.
Linear compliance, often called axial compliance, in the Versafinish allows the spindle to deflect along one axis of compliance with a constant contact force through the entire stroke of the pneumatic device controlling it.
It is argued that since the contact force computed with Hooke's Law does not involves any dynamics, and since virtual objects based on kinematic primitives cannot convey any dynamic deformation, then, a haptic interface based on Hooke's Law and virtual kinematic primitives are limited to establish a realistic interaction with the operator because the operator is a dynamical system immersed into a dynamical world.
They can also blend high electrical conductivity with longer life, lower contact forces, and unmatched mechanical repeatability.
