Notes from 10-Aug-2006 meeting
- Updates from the CERN run
Options for test beam runs in 2006, ongoing discussion about
whether to request beam time at CERN (May 2007), thereafter moving
to FNAL (July 2007), or to set up all runs in 2007 at FNAL.
Running possible at FNAL Aug. 2007-Mar-2008?
beam models in Mokka - Fabrizio
Still ongoing tests of minor change to G4/Mokka from Dave B. for
more general random number seed handling [DB/Fab/NKW - now
understood, problem caused by Mokka looking for G4 header in G4
"global" include directory first, if it exists, rather than in each
package sub-dir - noted for any future changes made to G4!]. Will
try small sample generation in each of RHUL/Manch/BHam and aim for
statistical compatibility rather than exact event-by-event agreement
as not distributing mokka binary.
G4 world volume increased frmo +-10m to +-50m to allow beamline
elements to be included. Do we need to have a model in Mokka which
includes TCMT alone (there was a short running period in this
TC thickness, actual was ~1.5m (George) unlike ~0.9m in
Simulation of trigger scintillators also required.
Simulation of upstream components - collimators also to be included?
These may be more than 50m away from detector origin. Probably not
