Hi Bruno,

can I ask you which is actually the difference between the isotropic 
compaction method and the expansion method? Which one do you prefer and why? I 
guess if the uniformity of the obtained porosity can be influenced by this 
choice. If you use the compaction method how can you be sure that the porosity 
of the specimen is equally distributed? Has been implemented something in Yade 
that checks this aspect, for instance, dividing the domain in more subdomains 
and comparing the value of porosity obtained in different regions? It might be 

Thanks a lot,
