Re: Question case when child volume not entirely inside mother volume (Athreya Shankar)
Date: 03 Jul, 2012
From: Athreya Shankar <Athreya Shankar>

Hello all,

I also went through some of the other posts, and came across this:

http://bugzilla-geant4.kek.jp/show_bug.cgi?id=1300

I made the corrections suggested by the comments in the above post to G4Navigator.cc. Now, I see that if the fiber surface and the scintillator surface coincide, i.e., if the fiber is placed within the scintillator such that the surface of the fiber exposed to the world coincides with the surface of the scintillator exposed to the world, then, the reflections are taking place well.

However, this does not enable me to keep the fibers half protruding from the scintillator - I read that geant4 does not allow for daughter volumes to protrude out of the mother volumes. So, is the only way I can achieve this is by using G4SubtractionSolid to remove semi-circular portions on the slab surface and then place the fibers there (their mother volume now being "world") ?

Thanks in advance,

Athreya
