Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

I would like to introduce the sievert (Sv), for equivalent and effective doses.
In Geant4 there is already the gray (Gy).
How can I consistently introduce the sievert, given that the sievert differs from the gray only because of a dimensionless factor ?
I don't understand how I can use G4UnitDefinition to define the sievert starting from the gray, because effectively the sievert is not exactly a composed unit obtained from the gray, as the factor between the two units is dimensionless.
Can anybody suggest a good and consistent conceptual approach ?
Maybe I shouldn't introduce the sievert at all ?
On the other hand my results must be output in sievert.
Thank you. Andrea Conti
