Continuum percolation-based tortuosity and thermal conductivity of soft superball systems: shape dependence from octahedra via spheres to cubes.

Two continuum percolation-based models are proposed to respectively obtain the tortuosity and effective thermal conductivity of soft superball systems considering their percolated behavior, where monodisperse overlapping superballs are uniformly distributed in a homogeneous solid matrix.

Geometrical percolation threshold of congruent cuboidlike particles in overlapping particle systems.

A versatile family of cuboidlike particles and a numerical contact detection algorithm for these particles are presented, and an analytical formula is proposed to quantify the dependence of ϕ_{c} on the parameters m and a/b, and its reliability is verified.



Continuum percolation of congruent overlapping spherocylinders.

It is found ϕ_{c} is a universal monotonic decreasing function of α and is independent of the effective particle size and has implications in percolation theory for nonspherical particles and composite material design.

Effects of particle asphericity on the macro- and micro-mechanical behaviors of granular assemblies

Particle shape has been regarded as a key factor affecting mechanical behaviors of granular assemblies. The present work proposes a shape descriptor, i.e., asphericity, to isolate the effect of

Parking simulation of three-dimensional multi-sized star-shaped particles

The shape and size of particles may have a great impact on the microstructure as well as the physico-properties of particulate composites. However, it is challenging to configure a parking system of
