The cover image depicts the results of a new approach to model particle–wall interactions that avoids the traditional limitation of cuboidal specimens with periodic boundary conditions. The new approach, which can generate cylindrical specimens, uses a particle–wall interaction scheme which applies small perturbations to eliminate particle overlapping. In the process, particles are geometrically shaken to yield a more orderly structure with a predominance of face-centered cubic and hexagonal arrangements as they approach the maximum density.
