What is the difference between FeelMath-VOX and LD?

Hi,
I always wondered what is the difference between the submodules FeelMath-VOX and FeelMath-LD in the ElastoDict module?
Looking forward to your answer,
Tabea

FeelMath-VOX computes the effective elastic properties for a given structure, while FeelMath-LD is used to compute deformations. Thus, FeelMath-VOX simulations are purely linear, while LD supports nonlinear materials (e.g. plasticity, damage, failure) and geometrically nonlinear deformations.
