Hello, G3-G4-VMC experts!

I have the following problem running simulation. I throw particles on my detector and collect edep. When I use electromagnetic particles i get no problems at all. But if i use hadrons (neutrons, pions) Geant3 crashes at some event number... In Geant4 I don't have such a problem (the results are funny in g4, but at least it works Smile).


Here is the output of my sim script:

Does anybody know how to beat this?

Thank you.

Hi
I have actually the same problem
when I try to run my simulation
(strange baryons)
in geant3.

any ideas?
Maybe it is related with the set up
process in the g3config.C.

I don't know.

cheers Alicia

Hi Dmitry
May I ask you
which generator are you using?

I get the same error
by using Ascii and Particle generator.

cheers Alicia.

Hi Dimitry,

I suggest you to add printouts in the ProcessHit function of your subdetector, to understand in which point the simulation crashes.

For debug purposes I found very useful also the lines usually commented in base/CbmMCApplication.cxx line 386 Debug for Geant tracking (inside CbmMCApplication::Stepping function) if you uncomment the sprintf you get the volumes tracked for each geant step and you might understand in which material happens the crash.
In my experience with the straw tubes I simulated also pions and protons but I did not see such a crash.

I do not know if this information helps you...

ciao, Pablo

Alicia,it does not depend on generator. Only on Geant version.

Pablo, thanks for the info! I'll try to check this.

Dmitry.

Hi everybody

You can look at the actual line where it happens.

FACFLU = DME*(Z*DENS/A)

Since it is a floting point exception i would assume that there
is a devision by zero.
This mean that you have defined some strange material with A=0.
Looking in the media file i didn't find anything except the
vacuum which has A=1.e-16. Maybe there is a problem with the
accuracy.
But here the information about the material would help.

Ciao

Florian

I found the bug. Thank you everybody for the useful comments.

Since in my subdetector i use TGeoManager to create geometry, volumes and media - I did not use "media.geo" file in sim macro:
fRun->SetMaterials("media.geo").

But i forgot that CAVE uses this file! So my cave did not have any media....

G4 was eating it without problem, but G3 is more scrupulous. I think this is because you always have sig fault deviding by zero in Fortran (G3) but not in C++ (G4).


Thank you again!

Dmitry.
