Radii based Isosurface Cavity:

The $cosmo_isorad section defines the radii defined isosurface cavity construction. The option uses the algorithm of the isodensity cavity construction but the objective function used depends on the cosmo radii instead of the electron density. The default values of nspa and nsph are changed to 162 and 92, respectively. This values are superseded by the user defined nspa value of the $cosmo section. The resulting surface exhibits smoother intersection seams and the segment areas are less diverse than the ones of the standard radii bases cavity construction. Because gradients are not implemented, the radii based isosurface cavity can be used in single point calculations only.
