RE: [fluka-discuss]: Problems using both DCYSCORE and AUXSCORE

Dear user,

If what you want is to score promt neutron dose then you should run a dedicated run without irradiation (remove DCYSCORE and RADDECAY) in order to calculate the dose/primary. Then you can normalise your results with the given irradiation time to find the total dose after irradiation.

The point is that any detector coupled to DCYSCORE scores only decay radiation (electrons/positrons/photon).
So the prompt radiation is not seen and therefore any NEUTRON filter will not show results.

Kind regards

Subject: [fluka-discuss]: Problems using both DCYSCORE and AUXSCORE

I encountered some problem using i both DCYSCORE and AUXSCORE card. I
would like to know the neutron dose during the irradiation time. I put a
USRBIN detector in the input file and AUXSCORE and DCYSCORE. The results
were confirming that there was a non-zero neutron dose. As soon as I
tried to put only the DCYSCORE card, the neutron was not zero . Where is
the problem?

Thank you!
