Beamtime templates

For each patient beamtime biological dose optimization has to be performed at GSI to generate the proper rst-files. This is done in several steps:
  1. The optimization based on absorbed dose is checked by rerunning the DKFZ-supplied exec's. Resulting rst- and * should be bit-identical
  2. The optimization based on biological dose is performed with exactly the same parameters, generating rst-files and various dose output files.
  3. The resulting rst-files are used to calculate the biological dose distribution on the entire CT grid. Since this task is rather time-consuming, it is "trivially" parallelized by distributing groups of CT slices across our compute cluster, using the IBM LoadLeveler.
To reduce the amount of manual work with exec- and command-files some support shell scripts plus file templates are available. The script
trip98beamtime  <yymm>
prepares everything for a specific beamtime: Within this directory, the trip98patient script defines templates for a specific patient.
