Schröder-Turk, G. E.; Schielein, R.; Kapfer, S. C.; Schaller, F. M.; Delaney, G. W.; Senden, T.; Saadatfar, M.; Aste, T.; Mecke, K.


Robust and sensitive tools to characterise local structure are essential for investigations of granular or particulate matter. Often local structure metrics derived from the bond network are used for this purpose, in particular Steinhardt's bond-orientational order parameters ql . Here we discuss an alternative method, based on the robust characterisation of the shape of the particles' Voronoi cells, by Minkowski tensors and derived anisotropy measures. We have successfully applied these...[Show more]
