Re: About SDEC packing
Sure! I will give the most help I can if Yuannian wants to write
something for this. I have one procedure in mind, I have already
it in the past for 2D packing.
This is not exactlly the same as the one from SDEC (mine is easier to
Thanks a lot! As I'm not familiar with Linux system which
the YADE runs on only, I've to write the code by myself. Currently
I'm working on the sphere packing algorithm comparison. I tried
the RCP (random close packing), but it seems the effect is not
very good for my study. I'll try to combine the geometric and
dynamic ways to realize this problem. By the way, which type of
method you used for your 2D packing?
1/ Random generation in a box (without contact - without gravity).
2/ Radii expansion until one prescibed value of the confining pressure
3/ Possibly : decreasing slowly the contact friction to densify the packing.
The packings obtained are homogeneous and isotropic, and you can choose
the final porosity and the relative particle size distribution.
It is the only method I know that combine all those aspects.
