Date:
Friday 22nd March 2013 - 14:40 to 15:00
Venue:
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract:
Random packing of mixtures of hard spherocylinders and hard spheres are studied for $d \approx L$, where $L$ is the length of the spherocylinder and $d$ the diameter of the spheres. Packing fractions of mixtures of hard spherocylindres with aspect ratios \$ 4
