class AbstractVolume : public Acts::Volume
AbstractVolume description inside the tracking realm.
This is the purely geometrical object volume.
The Acts::AbstractVolume is constructed by giving a pointer to a Transform3 and a pointer to Acts::VolumeBounds, this implies that the ownership of the objects pointed to is passed as well. For memory optimisation, the AbstractVolume can also be constructed with shared_ptr objects.
A Acts::AbstractVolume is at first a collection class of Acts::BoundarySurface, the vector of Acts::BoundarySurface is returned by the Acts::VolumeBounds that carry a decompose method.
Boundary surfaces can be shared between AbstractVolumes to enhance automatic navigation between AbstractVolumes, therefore they are reference counted by a std::shared_ptr holder class.
AbstractVolume() = delete
AbstractVolume(const Transform3 &transform, VolumeBoundsPtr volbounds)
Constructor with shared Transform3*, VolumeBounds*.
transform – is the global 3d transformation into the volume frame
volbounds – is the boundary definition
~AbstractVolume() override = default
const std::vector<BoundarySurfacePtr> &boundarySurfaces() const
Method to return the BoundarySurfaces.
the vector of boundary surfaces
