In addition, as alternative, I used USRBIN Beampart in 1x1x2 mesh to calculate the attenuation coefficient as well. In this option I the minimal energy which still gives the results was 34 keV. If smaller, like 33 keV, gives me zeroes even with 29x1E7 primaries. I tried single scattering option, but no changes. However, in the manual I read that ~10kev of primary photons still should work, so I guess it's my mistake which I cannot see?.

Subject: USRBDX zeroes below 340kev photon beam


I was using usrbdx to score the current for linear mass attenuation calculation. The values were nicely matched against NIST tables, until I reached specifically 0.33 MeV beam value, and despite any change of parameter: a thickness, no of primaries, even a material itself - I get zeroes in output usrbdx sum.lis file no matter what I do. Yet 0.34 MeV still gives a result. What mistake here I am making? *.inp attached,
