Garfield Version 6.29
Rob Veenhof GSI (Darmstadt, Germany)
Garfield version 6.29 is a maintenance release with enhancements
in the areas of field map interfaces, of signal calculations,
and of arrival time distributions for electrodes other than wires.
An interface for Tosca generated field maps with parallelepipeds as
elements has been written in collaboration with Guido Maria Urciuoli /
INFN Gruppo Collegata Sanitá.
Field maps with both an axial periodicity around an axis and a
translation periodicity along the same axis, can now be
Elimination of the excluded parts of the background in Maxwell
Field Simulator 3D field maps has been improved.
WIRE-MARKERS option has been made available in
the field, drift and signal sections.
Occasionally, plotting the materials present in field map
resulted in the screen being coloured uniformly. A new attempt has
been made to avoid this.
Magnetic fields computed by finite element programs can now be
entered via the
FIELD-MAP statement in the cell
Tracing Heed generated delta electrons in external electric and
magnetic fields would occasionally stop program execution when the
delta left the Heed tracking volume. This has been corrected.
Two new clustering models have been added to the
statement. They generate points along the track that are spaced
according to the flux of the electric field.
ARRIVAL-TIME-DISTRIBUTION command has been
extended to deal with other electrodes than wires. The command now
also operates in the y-z and z-y planes. Existing input files which
use this command need to be modified.
Track interpolation has been improved: options have been added
INTEGRATION-PARAMETERS which give better control
over the interpolation order and the way delta electrons are dealt
Drifting from the intersection between the viewing plane and
selected solids has been added.
Signal calculation in other electrodes than wires (planes, tube,
solids) has been enabled. Electrons arriving on a plane, tube or
solid now produce a signal that is classified as direct.
