I have built a full-size Earth (~6400km radius) with its ~10^22 J/T dipole, and I'm having a bit of trouble with run speed. I know the field is the cause of the slowness because when I set the field =0, the simulation runs quickly and with about the results I expect. I also tested a small dipole with a 1m sphere and got the usual behavior one expects from a dipole magnet, with a short run time. I currently have the field initialized in the DetectorConstruction class: SolarField* theField = new SolarField(); G4FieldManager* fieldMgr = G4TransportationManager::GetTransportationManager() ->GetFieldManager(); fieldMgr->CreateChordFinder(theField); fieldMgr->SetDetectorField(theField); like so. I figured there were two things I could do to speed up the performance: use a lower-order integrator, and increase step size. When I tried to use the following code, the program compiles and runs... somewhat. It works fine until I command /run/beamOn at which point it says "Run Start" and then locks up. It doesn't crash, it simply doesn't do anything after that. The code: SolarField* theField = new SolarField(); G4FieldManager* fieldMgr = G4TransportationManager::GetTransportationManager() ->GetFieldManager(); G4EqMagElectricField* theEqn = new G4EqMagElectricField(theField); G4MagIntegratorStepper* theStepper = new G4SimpleHeum(theEqn); G4double MinStep = 10*m; G4MagInt_Driver* theDriver = new G4MagInt_Driver(MinStep,theStepper, theStepper->GetNumberOfVariables() ); G4ChordFinder* theFinder = new G4ChordFinder(theDriver); fieldMgr->SetChordFinder(theFinder); fieldMgr->SetDetectorField(theField); Can anybody help me figure out why this refuses to run, or give me any other advice for speeding up the program? In the time it's taken me to write this, one electron has managed to travel a whole centimeter in vacuum... Thanks, Tim Chambers
