Grain shape inference

The distributions of size and shape of a material’s grains can be constructed from a 2D slice of the material and electron diffraction data.

Random close packing fractions of lognormal distributions of hard spheres

Lognormal distributions (and mixtures of same) are a useful model for the size distribution in emulsions and sediments.

Diffusional Monte Carlo model of liquid-phase sintering

Our Monte Carlo model sheds light on the Ostwald ripening, namely the growth of big particles at the expense of the small ones.
