[fluka-discuss]: RE: GLOBAL in Flair doesn't have SDUM

Dear Andrew,

Please note that there is an abundance of facilities for rotations in FLUKA, notably the ROT-DEFI card:

You can even stack multiple cards for adequate rotation / translation. I am adding an example to this email where I made some simple changes, first I translate an object without rotation, and then I rotate it without translation. In principle, it would also be possible (and save a card) to simply use a single card, but in that case you would have to recalculate the necessary translation into the newly rotated basis.

I'm attaching the example to this email. In this way, you can just use regular RPP's rather than deprecated BOX'es. Hope this helps,

Kind regards,

Subject: [fluka-discuss]: GLOBAL in Flair doesn't have SDUM

Fluka team,

I'm finding it necessary to use the BOX card, and I need to enable GLOBAL SDUM = DEPRBODY. Unfortunately, the Flair GLOBAL card doesn't have SDUM entry in flair. I'm also not very comfortable with the free format editing in fluka without flair. Is the option to enable deprecated bodies available somewhere other than GLOBAL card in flair? Or is there another way I can fix this issue.

In case anyone is wondering, the reason I'm using BOX instead of planes is that I'm modeling a ratchet-style shield wall with 10 wall segments at 45-degrees from the flair coordinate axes. Screenshot below. [cid:image002.png_at_01D509C3.CB93EE40]
