McXtrace: Union_make_material

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Output parameters | Links ]

The Union_make_material Component

Identification

  • Date: 20.08.15

Description

Part of the Union components, a set of components that work together and thus
separates geometry and physics within McXtrace.
The use of this component requires other components to be used.

1) One specifies a number of processes using process components
2) These are gathered into material definitions using this component
3) Geometries are placed using Union_box/cylinder/sphere, assigned a material
4) A Union_master component placed after all of the above

Only in step 4 will any simulation happen, and per default all geometries
defined before the master, but after the previous will be simulated here.

There is a dedicated manual available for the Union_components
