Garfield version 6.33 provides additional functionality for the simulation of avalanche processes. This version is able to compute the signals induced by a single track in several electrodes, such as a collection of strips in a CSC.
FORCEScommand plots, on request, a diagram which shows whether a wire is in stable or labile equilibrium.
CHANGE-VOLTAGES command now also works for
planes and for the tube.
PROJECTED-PATHintegration parameter, which to a large extent eliminates the dependence of the avalanche size on the Monte Carlo step size. On the other hand, a new procedure
RND_MULTIPLICATIONhas been written which simulates the avalanche fluctuation over a fixed path, taking attachment and multiplication into account.
RND_MULTIPLICATIONmentioned before, and random number generators according to functions and histograms (
RND_HISTOGRAM). The function random number generator is based on the FUNLUX routine from the CERN program library.
Garbage collect for matrix assignments in loops has been improved.
