Question Accessing material (element) info for composites 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 15 Apr, 2010
From: Katalin Nikolics <Katalin Nikolics>


what i'd like to do is the following: send particles (easy case: geantinos) through my beam pipe model and print out the total length of the part of their track that passed through matter. also, i'd like to computer the radiation length of the material the particles go through, hence i need (A,Z). now my problem is, how do i access (A,Z) for compound materials? is there a method already implemented or do i just print out the material info (fractionmass) and then sum up the weighted radiation lengths of the individual components?

cheers, Kati
