## RPC docs

• Resistive Plate Chambers chapter in Muon TDR
• Barrel
• Physics requirements demand that in each station the strips, running always along the beam direction, be divided into two parts for stations MB1, MB3 and MB4. Station MB2, which represents a special case for the trigger algorithm, will have strips divided into three parts.
• For each double-gap 96 strips will be read out.
• Endcap

### (sw) Geometry

• Visualization Offline Guide
• http://cmslxr.fnal.gov/lxr/source/DetectorDescription/Parser/test/dumpDDCompactView.cpp
• RPCDetId.h
• Region id:
• 0 for Barrel
• +/-1 For +/- Endcap
• Ring id:
• Barrel: Wheel number from -2 to +2
• Endcap: Ring Number from 1 to 3
• Ring has a different meaning in Barrel and Endcap! In Barrel it is wheel, in Endcap it is the physical ring located on a disk (a disk contains three rings). In Endcap the ring is the group of chambers with same r (distance of beam axis) and increasing phi
• Station id :
• Barrel: the 4 groups of chambers at same r (distance from beam axis) and increasing phi
• Endcap: the 3 groups of chambers at same z (distance from interaction point), i.e. the disk
• Sector id:
• the group of chambers at same phi (and increasing r)
• Layer id: each station can have two layers of chambers: layer 1 is the inner chamber and layer 2 is the outer chamber (when present). Only in Barrel: RB1 and RB2.
• SubSector id : some sectors are divided along the phi direction in subsectors
• Barrel: from 1 to 4
• Endcap: from 1 to 6
• Roll (also known as eta partition) id: each chamber is divided along the strip direction in
• Barrel: 2 or 3 parts (rolls)
• Endcap: 2,  3 or 4 parts

##### Misc
• Each LB reads 96 strips of one η partition (1 roll = half RPC)

#### Geant4 and GDML
