Illustration of the three different regimes for which analytical solutions have been derived. Case A represents the growth cascade discussed in Sect. 2.1, case B the intermediate regime (see Sect. 2.2) and case C the fragmentation dominated regime which is discussed in Sect. 2.3. Particles are shattered once they reach the fragmentation barrier mf since collision velocities for particles  > mf exceed the fragmentation threshold velocity.
