The packing of uniform fine spherical particles ranging from 1 to 1000 microm has been simulated by means of discrete particle simulation. The packing structure is analyzed, facilitated by the well established Voronoi tessellation. The topological and metric properties of Voronoi polyhedra are quantified as a function of particle size and packing density. The results show that as particle size or packing density decreases, (i) the average face number of Voronoi polyhedra decreases, and the… CONTINUE READING
