[Question #676841]: the definition of porosity


New question #676841 on Yade:


I am calculating the porosity in the period triaxial compression.From the documentation,the porosity is defined as (V-Vs)/V,where V is overall volume and Vs is volume of spheres.For periodic simulations, current volume of the Cell is used.Yade should be a soft ball model.So while calculating,Vs is the volume of the compressed sphere or the volume of the original sphere?
