Random close packing of spheres in a round cell

To, Long T; Stachurski, Zbigniew


The paper describes the method of construction of cells containing large numbers (105-106) of close packed spheres, ranging in packing fractions from 0.2 to 0.60. The cells are constructed in a round form, utilizing varying surface curvature to prevent ordered packing. The properties of the cells are described by a series of distributions: (i) polar angle of contact points, (ii) maximum displacement of loose spheres, (iii) and Voronoi volumes for individual spheres. The cells of varying density...[Show more]
