Re: pregenerated sphere packings


Hi Vaclav,

The making of the initial assembly of particles in DEM is an important and often time consumming step. So I don't think I can help you, but I think that a such process of generation of packings of particles should very interesting and usefull.



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?
