TruncatedCube

A cube whose eight vertices have been removed. The truncated part of each vertex is a trirectangular tetrahedron.

Constructor

TruncatedCube(L, t)

Parameters:

  • L, length of the full cube
  • t, side length of the trirectangular tetrahedron removed from the cube’s vertices

Constraint:

$ t \le L/2 $

Usage

As for any other Form factor.

Implementation

Class TruncatedCube inherits from the interface class IFormFactor .

Form factor computation is based on the generic form factor of a polyhedron provided by libformfactor.

Volume has been validated against $$ V= L^3 - \dfrac{4}{3} t^3. $$

Example

Scattering by uncorrelated, oriented truncated cubes for horizontal incidence. Rotation around $z$ axis:

History

Reimplemented in BornAgain 1.6 using the generic polyhedron form factor [Wuttke 2021]. Motivated by [Croset 2017].
