Dear fluka user,

As you know, there are two aspects in the induced radioactivity of the electron linear accelerators. One is direct process: photonulear reactions, such as (gamma,n),(gamma,p),(gamma,2n). The other process is indirect and consists in a neutron capture reaction after release of a neutron by a photoneutron reaction. The way in the Email of Victor Dushin seems for the second process. But i think the first process is more important. Using the RESNUCLE card, I think I can get the induced radioactivity originated from the two process. I think in case there is a neutron being produced in the photoneutron reaction, there should be a induced nucleus being produced. But in my case the neutron fluence can be got, but the number of induced nuclei is always zero. I want to know the reason. Whether is the number of the particle in my input file not enough, or are there some errors in the settings of my input file?

Thanks a lot

Zhen Wu,
