Abstract. The topological structure resulting from the network of contacts
between grains (contact network) is studied for large samples of monosized
spheres with densities (fraction of volume occupied by the spheres) ranging from
0.59 to 0.64. We retrieve the coordinates of each bead in the pack and we calculate
