dear users & chuck & vasilis,
thanx for your comments.
by the way i have done the same thing with trim and calculated the
close results as chuck mentioned.
another thing is that do i have to use mat-prop options for air ?
evenif i use it i can see only slight differenceses in the
and the beam energy i used is 20MeV/n, and i use it with dpmjet. right?
