Re: Transporting EM Particles in multiple regions.

of course you can define as many materials/elements in as many different
regions as you want! You have to generate a pemf file for each material
and concatenate together all pemf files into a single one, whose name
has to be passed on the command line to the rfluka script.

Clearly, or you did something wrong when appending the two pemf files
together (grep for TUNGSTEN into the file to check it is really there),
or there is something mispelled in the FLUKA or PEMF input.

Of course you can define as many RESNUCLEI cards as you want in different

One region is aluminum and the other is tungsten. I have created a pemf file which has both of those elements in it but for some reason the program only regonizes the second element defined in the file. The program stops with the message:
