Question How the elastic and inelastic scattering are classified?

From: Giuseppe Vitucci <Giuseppe Vitucci>

Hi all,

I am simulating a beam of thermal - cold neutrons towards a cylinder full of water. I would like to classify the number of neutrons transmitted towards the sample and the number of neutrons scattered by the molecules of the sample.

I tried to use the function "aTrack->GetCreatorProcess()" to see if some of the detected neutrons were tagged with "HadElastic" , but it seems that they are not classified as secondary particles (in fact it goes in segmentation fault).

The only particles carrying such info are the protons and the deuterons (because of nCapture process).

So my question is: can you confirm that elastically scattered neutrons are still considered primary?

Also do you have an alternative idea/suggestion to get my goal?
