Question G4VSolid to G4Box 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 08 Apr, 2013
From: Manuel Castro Avila <Manuel Castro Avila>

Hi Geant4 Users,

I created a geometry and inside some volumes, I placed a daughter volumes. When I run the simulation, I am checking if the geometry is fine and the number of daughter volumes (if is the case) inside a mother volume. In order to perform that, I use the GetNoDaughters() and GetDaughter (const G4int i ) methods from G4LogicalVolume class. GetDaughter returns a G4VPhysicalVolume element and from it, I can get the logical volume associated with the daughter volume. Now, I want to know the dimensions (solid volume) of the daughter volume. From the logical volume, I can get the solid volume using GetSolid method, but this variable is of the G4VSolid type. G4VSolid does not have any method to get the dimensions. I know the daughter volume was created with the class G4Box, but I do not know how associate the solid from GetSolid with G4Box (if possible), any idea?

Thanks in advance,
