An analysis is given of the properties of model structures consisting of known polyhedra. The conditions of using the Monte Carlo method which reduce to a minimum the errors of simulation one- and two-dimensional parameters of polyhedra are examined. Characteristics of parameters, which are most frequently analysed in real structures, obtained as a result of the analysis of four selected polyhedra (cube, Kelvin’s tetraidecahedron, pentagonal and rhombic dodecahedrons) are presented.
