Random sequential adsorption of partially ordered discorectangles onto a continuous plane
Abstract
Computer simulation was used to study the random sequential adsorption of identical discorectangles onto a continuous plane . The problem was analyzed for a wide range of discorectangle aspect ratios ($\varepsilon \in [1;100]$). We studied anisotropic deposition, i.e., the orientations of the deposited particles were uniformly distributed within some interval such that the particles were preferentially aligned along a given direction. The kinetics of the changes in the packing density $\varphi$ found at different values of $S_0$ are discussed. Partial ordering of the discorectangles significantly affected the packing density at the jamming state, $\varphi_\text{j}$, and shifted the cusps in the $\varphi_\text{j}(\varepsilon)$ dependencies. The structure of the jammed state was analyzed using the adsorption of disks of different diameters into the porous space between the deposited discorectangles. The analysis of the connectivity between the discorectangles was performed assuming a coreshell structure of particles.
