Our papers are the official record of our discoveries. They allow others to build on and apply our work. Each paper is the result of many months of research, so we make a special effort to make them clear, beautiful and inspirational, and publish them in leading journals.

  • Mean grain diameters from thin sections: matching the average to the problem

    RFR. FarrVHMH Mineralogical Magazine

    3d grains from 2d slices

    Moment-based methods provide a simple way to describe a population of spherical particles and extract 3d information from 2d measurements.

  • Simple heuristic for the viscosity of polydisperse hard spheres

    RFR. Farr Journal of Chemical Physics

    Viscosity of polydisperse spheres

    A quick and simple way to evaluate the packing fraction of polydisperse spheres, which is a measure of how they crowd around each other.

  • Shear elastic deformation and particle packing in plant cell dispersions

    PLVCSSRFR. Farr Food Biophysics

    Shear elastic deformation in cells

    Analysis of the linear elastic behaviour of plant cell dispersions improves our understanding of how to stabilise and texturise food products.
