I understand why you are asking. I don't have the answer except to say that you, yourself, have to calculate the total field by adding the contributing fields at every point in space. A lot of work and coding is required and it's a shame since G4 already "knows" where all the field components are and their distance to point x/y. Now, in G4 you must not have overlapping volumes (field elements)!

For a better start, please take a look at posting #116 below by Tom Roberts.

Tom Roberts is the author of URL http://g4beamline.muonsinc.com . Its code is available, source and binary. I understand there is a workable solution to the problem of overlapping fringe fields from different beam elements.
