SOME DENSE RANDOM PACKINGS GENERATED BY THE DEAD LEAVES MODEL

Dominique Jeulin

Abstract

The intact grains of the dead leaves model enables us to generate random media with non overlapping grains. Using the time non homogeneous sequential model with convex grains, theoretically very dense packings can be generated, up to a full covering of space. For these models, the theoretical volume fraction, the size distribution of grains, and the pair correlation function of centers of grains are given.
