Manuscript Title: 3D Simulation of the Cluster-Cluster Aggregation Model
Authors: Chao Li, Hailing Xiong
Program title: CCA
Catalogue identifier: AEUK_v1_0
Distribution format: tar.gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 185(2014)3424
Programming language: Java.
Computer: Any computer with Windows, java jdk and java3d jdk installed.
Operating system: Windows.
RAM: Determined by the number of the initial particles in the simulation test
Keywords: Cluster-Cluster aggregation, Aggregation model, Fractal.
Classification: 14, 16.12.

Nature of problem:
The programs for the CCA model published are very rare, and are mostly in the form of a 2D figure. So, existing computer simulation programs can't well simulate the fractal aggregation. Compared to the existing programs, our simulation program for the CCA model in the form of a 3D figure can better simulate the process dynamically.

Solution method:
A program is provided that well simulates CCA model in the form of a 3D figure. The program implementation is based on the java programming language. Especially, we use the java3d technology to display the simulative graphics in form of 3D.

Restrictions:
In order to show the process of fractal aggregation growth dynamically, this program needs to refresh the graphics of aggregation of colloidal particle frequently. So this program takes up a lot of computer memory. The storage capacity of the computer memory used to run the program will limit the number of single particles which the program can simulate.

Unusual features:
The program simulates the CCA model in the form of a 3D figure using the java3d technology.

Running time:
Determined by the size of the problem.
