Question Porous Material : any Idea 

Keywords: Geometrical definition of a powder
Forum: Geometry
Date: 29 Nov, 2005
From: Guillaume Potdevin <>

Dear Geant4 users

I have successfully used Geant4 for a number of simulations and now I would like to go one step ahead:

I would like to be able to study porous materials, and more precisely powders. I know the code is certainly not made to handle with several objects of various shapes; but it would be already interesting to have a stack of radomly placed cubes for example...

The problem is that I cannot use a kind of "random drop technique" for I am sure I will have problems of overlapping of objects.

So does anybody have an idea to define such a geometry, even if I am to take 95% of the available gig of memory, and if simulations will last for days and days?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
