FLUKA Beginners Course will be held at the
Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL), POSTECH, South Korea, May 8-12, 2017.
Here is a collection of tools in context of FLUKA input and output. This space is open for similar software tools - please feel free to contact the FLUKA team to suggest and/or participate in additional projects to develop tools. User input/feedback is very much encouraged.
flair: /fleɘe(r)/ - natural or instinctive ability to do something well,
to select or recognize what is best, more useful, etc.
An advanced user interface for FLUKA to facilitate the editing of input files, building the executable, execution of the code, visualization of the output files, merging of the data files and generation of high quality graphs using gnuplot as well as photorealistic 3D plots of the geometry with data superimposed with PovRay. A cross platform application based entirely on python and Tkinter.
FLUPIX: FLUKA in KNOPPIX
FLUPIX is a KNOPPIX
version of the Live CD, with
pre-installed FLUKA, flair and all the necessary tools in for
performing fluka runs. In the packages.txt you will find a complete
list of the packages currently included in the ISO image.
FLUPIX can run as a bootable CD/DVD, bootable USB or through any
virtual machine from any host operating system (Ms Windows, Mac OS,
Linux, Solaris etc.) on an Intel CPU. However FLUPIX includes all
the additions of VirtualBox (www.virtualbox.org) a free and open
source Virtual machine supported by Sun, that provides easy
installation and high performance. The VirtualBox solution is the
recommended way of working. The only disadvantage of VirtualBox is
that you need to have at least 1GB of RAM for Windows XP, Linux or
2GB for Windows Vista.
Fluka Geant4 Geometry interface
Development of a FLUKA interface to the GEANT4 geometry format. A subset of GEANT4 volume definitions has been implemented. In this mode, FLUKA utilizes the GEANT4 geometry package internally in order to determine where a particle is in space, ie. in which volume.
SimpleGeo is a new project to provide a graphical tool in order to compose/manipulate FLUKA geometry input (including the material aspect) and perform 3D visualization.
Testing & verification - Numerical Cyclic Redundancy Check
TVF NMCRC is user interface for writing and executing FLUKA input files under development. TVF (Testing & verification for FLUKA) - features a graphical interface for easy working in the FLUKA environment. It can be of help especially for new users in order to build the FLUKA input fies. By using it, you do not need to check how to write, how many "WHAT" you have to use, how many spaces you keep, what are the physical constants and other related questions. Authors: Sergei Homchenko, Maxim Shifrin and Dr. Shlomo Mark from NMCRC (Negev Monte Carlo Research Center, Israel).
These programs provide an interface between FLUKA and AutoCAD, permitting to visualize FLUKA geometries (FLUKACAD) and simulated particle tracks (PIPSICAD) in three dimensions in AutoCAD.
FLUKA backend Graphical User Interface to inspect/manipulate standard FLUKA output files. The project is developed within the root framework. Currently only USRBIN output is supported. In addition the implemented geometry can be visualized in a user friendly way following the traditional FLUKA concept of 2D cut planes.
Editor Syntax Highlight
Syntax highlighting scripts for the editors: Emacs and Gvim.
Obsolete software. No longer supported.
flukatools (tared, gzipped)
A collection of BRexx scripts to facilitate editing of fluka input files as plotting the geometry and USRBIN results. The scripts are able to convert the fluka files to various formats like: MCNP(X), Povray, DXF, and between all possible formats that fluka acceptsfixed, double precision, free format, with names or numbers.
Note: These utilities are substituted by the Flair project.
