I´m using matlab 2013. I require plug-n nonlinear springs together to form a ring, to obtain a stress-deformation behavior of exponential type (without using damper). I just want to observe the deformation-tension behavior. Only connect in parallel? the masses are iguales.force of equal magnitude is applied to all masses. Thanks all.

You can programmatically build up a set of nonlinear springs using add_block(), add_line() commands. An example of how to do this for a pendulum is attached below.
