Symbols related to code variables and a brief description.

Symbol Code variable Description
id Identification number of each aggregate
Nmaxchain MAX_nchains Maximum number of chains that will be executed if Cconv is not reached
ncoll N_coll Number of consecutive collisions within a collision chain
Nagg,0 NAGGREGATES Initial number of aggregates
Rgrain RGRAIN Monomer radius
mgrain MASSGRAIN Monomer mass
μ mass_ratio Mass ratio between collision partners
Rlow RLOW Lowest initial radius value
Rhigh RHIGH Highest initial radius value
Rstep RSTEP Step size between successive radius values, for distribution calculation
ϕlow FFLOW Lowest initial filling factor value
ϕhigh FFHIGH Highest initial filling factor value
ϕstep FFSTEP Step between filling factor values, for distribution calculation
ϕmax FFMAX Maximum filling factor value reached after a collision
Cconv CONV_CUTOFF Convergence cut off: indicates the expected statistical error; if this value is reached the simulation ends
A1, A2 A1, A2 Pair of aggregates in a collision.
CALC_NFF Indicate if mass-porosity distribution is required
YL Y_l Number of particles ejected into large fragments after a collision
Ys Y_s Number of particles ejected as monomers or small clusters after a collision
τ TAU Exponent of the power-law relationship for Ys

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.
