I'm trying to find an angle probability distribution for a particle (sand grain) bouncing on an irregular surface.
I'm wondering if you could approach this irregular surface like a Lattice of triangles or spheres and see how the particle could bounce depending where it hit's. The problem with this approach is that it doesn't seem to provide the random nature of the collision with a real irregular surface. Making a random lattice seems like the obvious solution but without real knowledge of the material, it seems really hard to find the right distribution of lattices.
As a side note, i'm looking for the case of a surface like glass or maybe paper.
