Hi Veronika,

Change the fourth entry - WHAT(4)- in your current RADDECAY card, as currently with
' 99999' you kill the electromagnetic cascade in the prompt part and therefore
you will not be able to activate anything.
If for instance you use '0100001000' it will work.

Subject: activation by electrons/photons

Dear all,

I am trying to learn to simulate activation of materials. In my example I
have a 100MeV electron beam impinging on a steel cylinder.
I have run 7.5e8 primaries, with weight of 1.8e9, but all I get is an empty
data set. I have tried to change the source energy into 50GeV, but with
the same negative result, so I guess I miss some important point in the problem
definition. Could you please help me? Or give me a reference where I can find the answer?

Thanks a lot,
