Abstract:

Using the Legendre polynomials as a basis to represent the pair correlation function PCF of hard aspherical particles, the PCF was evaluated as a function of geometry, volume fraction and orientation using the Monte Carlo technique. Tables and graphs of the PCF are presented for aligned prolate and oblate spheriods of various aspect ratios. The Monte Carlo values are also compared with the Percis-Yevick approximation and the virial expansion. These results for the PCF should be useful in describing wave propagation in discrete random media.
