Session 8

More on Geometry, Kernel


  • More on Geometry ( slides )
    • Magnetic field, Repeated placements (parameterised volume, replicas and divisions, nested parameterisation), Special techniques of placements (Assembly volume, Reflected volume), Debugging geometries
  • Geometry persistency( slides )
    • ASCII text models, GDML, Importing geometries from CAD
  • More on Multi-threading( slides )
    • Event data reduction, Results with Geant 10.00 (reproducibilty, scalability, memory reduction), integration with external frameworks, migration from 9.6 to MT


  • Add magnetic field
  • Upgrade geometry (use of rotation, replica)
  • Export/import geometry in GDML
