Abstract
Several theoretical contributions in order to establish a particle packing methodology are presented. In this respect, a generic formulation of a new method for packing particles based on a constructive advancing front method, which uses Monte Carlo techniques for the generation of particle dimensions, is also shown. The method can be used to obtain virtual dense packings of particles with several geometrical shapes. It employs continuous, discrete and empirical statistical distributions in orde...
