(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Best numerical technique???

I've recently used Simpson's (1/3) rule for the numerical solution of the 'intersecting cylinders' problem. I've found that it isn't too accurate no matter how many intervals I take (I have even taken 1000,000 intervals!), but still end up with some error.

I'll appreciate any one for helping me in this matter
