The paper presents an algorithm to generate sphere packing. Produced packing honors complex geological structural and stratigraphic discontinuities. We demonstrated the ability of the method to create adaptive particle radii in order to reduce the global number of sphere while keeping a precise description of small geological heterogeneities. Packings have been validated both using classical statistical metrics from the literature and solving uniaxial and triaxial mechanical simulations with Discrete Element Methods.
