A New Structure of Cylinder Packing


We report a new periodic structure of the cylinder packing. All the cylinders are congruent and the length of the cylinders are infinite and their directions are restricted to only six directions of 〈110〉. Each cylinder is fixed by cylinders of other directions, so that the whole structure sustains mechanical stability. The packing density equals to
