Eureka! I and my prof figured it out. We found something interesting - that the energy density actually depends on a number of internal variables, namely, the displacements of the outer and inner walls, and porosity (which we already knew). So, when we specified the outer displacement to always be a fraction of the radius of the outer sphere, that seemed to ...

There are active geological processes that lead to separation of mineral constituents. A source material that contains specific primary minerals, with some transport mechanism (eg convection or liquid flows) to physically separate them and 'trapping' conditions that allow them to accumulate are all required. Processes that result in minerals being separated ...

When the Earth was formed and was still in a molten or semi-molten state, the heavy metals, principally iron and nickel, were attracted by gravity to the Earth's deep interior, leaving only traces of them on the surface. However, the bombardment by comets, asteroids and mega-meteorites continued after a crust was formed. These were of varied composition and ...
