Relative velocities between compact (left) or very porous (right) particles with masses mi and mj at the midplane of an MMSN-disk at 5 AU with α = 10-3. The masses range from single monomers to aggregates containing 1032 monomers. The contours give relative velocities in m s-1, and the colors indicate the dominating source for the relative velocity: Brownian motion (BrM), turbulence (Trb), settling (Set), radial drift (Rad), or azimuthal drift (Azi). Epstein, Stokes, and Newton drag regimes have been taken into account.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
