Re: Question energy deposition - pre-step, post-step (Athreya Shankar)
Date: 03 Jun, 2012
From: Athreya Shankar <Athreya Shankar>

Hello all,

I went through the user's manual and understood that the step size in such cases is limited by the physical volume, ie., if a step is such that the particle encounters a new volume during the course of that step, then the step ends then and there, and the poststeppoint is assigned as the next volume. So, there will be no assignments of energy depositions to incorrect volumes if we check the pre-step point of a step.

Have I understood this point correctly?

Thanks in advance,
