Definition and properties of ideal amorphous solids
It is proposed that two ideal amorphous structures, type I and type II, based on maximally random jammed packing of spheres of equal size, form a distinct class of ideal amorphous solids. The ideal amorphous structures contain wide variations in local density, limited by the condition of solidity. Four distinct characteristics, based on statistical geometry and topology, are shown to define this class. Voronoi tessellations carried out on simulated cells of random packed spheres and...[Show more]
