Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


BDSIM is a Geant4 and C++ based particle tracking code which seamlessly tracks particles in accelerators and particle detectors, including the full range of particle interaction physics processes in Geant4. The code has been used to model the backgrounds in the International Linear Collider (ILC), Compact Linear Collider (CLIC), Accelerator Test Facility 2 (ATF2) and more recently the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This paper outlines the current code and possible example applications and presents a roadmap for future developments.
