Dear Fluka experts,
I am running simulations with a 40 AGeV Pb beam hitting a Pb target to study the particle fluence on silicon detectors placed downstream of the targets.
I attach the input file.
I have the following questions:

1. the Pb target thickness corresponds to \sim15% interaction probability. Most of the ions are passing through the targets and the central hole of silicon detectors. Is there a way to force all simulated ions to interact in the target in order to estimate the fluence corresponding to the interacting ions?

2. Is it possible to select interactions in a given centrality class? For instance 0-5% most central collisions?

Thanks in advance,
best regards,
 Gianluca Usai
