Hello :)

yes, there is a sphere packing code in SDEC, it's just not yet ported to YADE.

Frederic Donze has written SDEC, and you can try to ask him. But even if
he gives you the source, I'm sure that he will not have time to explain
you how to work with it! 

Honestly I think that your only hope here is YADE - but it's still in
beta phase. So currently using it requires much self-commitment. We are
working on documentation. And we need as much help as possible. For
example you could try to get sphere packing code from SDEC and try to
rewrite it for YADE (unless Bruno does it first ;).
