This tutorial will based on a modified version of Hadrontherapy example provided by the Italian INFN Institute. For more information visit the Hadrontherapy website. This totorial produces spread out Bragg peak curve. It is produced by a modulation system that spreads the beam in energy. This system consists of a rotating wheel of different thicknesses. The wheel rotates around an axis parallel to the proton beam axis.

Setting up the environment

Connect to HEP cluster and create folder ProtonSBFolder in your area
ssh -X 

password: type your password here

cd /home/username/ 

mkdir ProtonSBFolder 

cd ProtonSBFolder  
Setup your environment
source /unix/pbt/software/dev/bin/  

How to get the code

Copy the code to your working directory and rename it
cp -r /unix/pbt/tutorials/basic/ProtonSB .
mv ProtonSB ProtonSB_source

How to run the code

Inside /home/username/ProtonSBFolder/ create a directory
mkdir ProtonSB_build  
To compile the code enter this directory and run cmake and make
cd ProtonSB_build 

cmake -DGeant4_DIR=/unix/pbt/software/dev /home/username/ProtonSBFolder/ProtonSB_source 

Run macro proton.mac.
./protonSB proton.mac
