Re: pregenerated sphere packings
Václav Šmilauer a écrit :
I would like to have pregenerated (periodic) packing of spheres which
could be used to fill arbitrary volumes just by putting one cell next
to another and then clip the result to get the exact shape. I use
constant sphere radius. How would you generate such packing? I imagine
like 10k spheres. Would it be useful for other people to have it in
yade as text file and some utilities to use it?
I know yade cannot do it at the moment, but perhaps PFC can?
Yes PFC can, if you pay the additional bill for the periodic boundaries
option... I don't know anybody with this version in Grenoble.
Appart from this, it is a good idea and yes it could probably be used by
more than one guy. All we need is to code the periodic boundaries in
Yade (I have ideas for this but no time...), or find somebody with a
