Thank you so much for the clarification. I will try to locate that equation
in the source code too.

That's just restating standard stuff, e.g. Essman 1995.

I thought you were referring to larger rigid bodies. Bonded exclusions are
dealt with by all these codes the same way. Note carefully the use of erf
vs erfc in the corrective terms.
