Re: can I calculate heat load?

if you want to calculate damage through DPA-SCO it is possible with the
USRBIN estimator.
You have to select DPA-SCO as quantity to score, and the desired type of
mesh (10.0, 11.0 ...) according to your geometry.
The results you'll get will be in unit of displacements per atom per
unit primary weight.

About the heat load, I guess that you can calculate it either offline,
taking the energy deposition distribution from FLUKA and folding with
the specific heat of the target material, or online (more or less the
same way), compiling an external routine (comscw.f).
A third simple way (for flair users) consists in calculating energy
deposition with FLUKA and then normalize the results multiplying by the
specif heat coefficient or expression.
I hope it could be helpful,
