Abstract

The Lubachevsky-Stillinger algorithm was extended and used to study the packing of a binary sphere mixture over a wide range of sphere volume ratios. It was found that the extended algorithm is able to pack bidisperse spheres significantly more efficiently than a recursive method over the range of sphere volume ratios considered.
