RE: Spontaneous decay of cobalt-60 and random BEAMPOS?

Dear Georgios,

I would like to mention that a good alternative to the way indicated by
Giuseppe, is putting directly 60Co as the beam particle (ISOTOPE, +
HI-PROPE), letting it decay by FLUKA with RADDECAY in semi-analogue mode
(WHAT(1)=2.0), and associating all the relevant scoring cards to the decay
radiation through DCYSCORE (WHAT(1)=-1.0).
Then, for the time being, the source routine would be still needed just
for the radioisotope spatial distribution, through the RACO sampling (to
be applied only to the coordinate choice, since in this case you do not
need any direction specification).
