Dear Francesco Cerutti,
Many thanks for your answer. I have already changed low mat card according
to U-238. Regarding problem in running, initially it was running up to 10^7
history but now even for 10^5 history the timed out problem appears,
although each time after run I delete all the generated output files , log
files etc to save space for the next run. This problem in running files
appears for other input files also. Is RAM of 768MB not sufficient for
running FLUKA.
With regards

       Dear Mausumi,

       it is hard to precisely identify your problem. Since the job
       turns out to be killed, and not aborted, I do not think that it
       concerns FLUKA itself but points at some issue regarding the way
       your sistem handles jobs, perhaps due to RAM unavailability or
       time limit on CPU occupancy. Does the run regularly end for less
       About your input, notice that:
       i. the VACUUM material definition is pointless (you are not
       allowed to re-define (?!) the pre-defined VACUUM and the card is
       ii. the needed LOW-MAT card associates your URANIUM with ...
       nothing. So the first material in the low energy neutron cross
       section library is taken, and you are going to use, for
       transport in natural uranium of low energy neutrons coming from
       muon nuclear interactions, the cross sections of natural
       hydrogen bound in water.

       Best regards
