Abstract

The packing fraction of geometric random packings of discretely sized particles is addressed in the present paper. In an earlier paper [Brouwers, Phys. Rev. E 74, 031309 (2006);74, 069901(E) (2006)], analytical solutions were presented for the packing fraction of polydisperse geometric packings for discretely sized particles with infinitely large size ratio and the packing of continuously sized particles. Here the packing of discretely sized particles with finite size ratio u is analyzed and compared with empirical data concerning five ternary geometric random close packings of spheres with a size ratio of 2, yielding good agreement.
