Re: Solid Angle in USERBDX

Dear Reza,

Please note that (see Manual/USRBDX)

           Angular distributions must be intended as distributions in
           cos(theta), where theta is the angle between the particle
           trajectory and the normal to the boundary at the point of

Thus, theta is not the angle between the beam direction and the particle
trajectory when it crosses the spherical boundary. Could this explain
your observation?

Please also note that USRBDX/What(1)=1 is current scoring and not fluence
scoring as you mention it in your question.

Best regards
