Size and density sorting of dust grains in SPH

The size and density of dust grains determine their response to gas drag in protoplanetary discs Aerodynamical size × density sorting is one of the proposed mechanisms to explain the grain properties and chemical fractionation of chondrites However the efficiency of aerodynamical sorting and the location in the disc in which it could occur are still unknown

03 06 2015· This introduces a sorting term p = P90 P10 called the percentile deviation to account for the spread in grain size The p term is expressed in phi units where phi= log 2d in mm For a sample with a median grain diameter of mm a value of for p implies that 10% of the grains are > mm and 10% are < mm
