Dear Fluka Experts,

I am trying to run simple experiment with usage of four radioisotpes:
Cs137, Co60, Ra226 and Am241. I am using RADDECAY card and isotope option
as a beam. My target is air-filled cylinder and I am using USRBIN card with
ENERGY option set up as a particle to score (I want to score deposited
energy in cylinder).

My assumption was that for all isotopes I will get quite similar results of
energy deposited in cylinder, however this is not what the simulation has
shown. For Co60 and Cs137 I got similar results however for Am241 and Ra226
results of the simulations differ a lot.

Can You please advise what might be wrong with my input file? Probably I am
missing some significant processes that take place during the simulation or
I do not understand how energy deposition is scored with USRBIN. For each
simulation I am setting up HI-PROPE card with adequate mass and atomic

Best regards,
