On Modelling of Refractory Castables by Marked Gibbs and Gibbsian-like Processes
The modelling of self-flowing refractory castables, a special kind of concrete, is discussed. It consists of two phases: a system of randomly distributed spherical hard grains and a cement matrix. The focus is on marked Gibbs and Gibbsian-like processes but also some other models are discussed. It turns out that a particular canonical marked Gibbsian-like process is useful for modelling the samples and more plausible than the classical stationary marked Gibbs process.
