Synthetic 2-phase microstructures are often used as a surrogate for real microstructures based on experimental microstructure statistics or as a way to test how different microstructure features affect properties of materials. These can be generated through a number of different techniques. In this technical note, a random sequential adsorption algorithm implemented in MATLAB issued to generate 3-dimensional synthetic microstructures composed of packing of ellipses within a voxelized microstructure. The MATLAB scripts are attached as appendices for future development and application.
