Dear Andrew,

Even if flair doesn't have the option to add the SDUM from a pull down menu, you can directly edit the card. In the flair window, if you select the GLOBAL card, on the bottom you can see how the card appears as text (which actually is what Fluka reads. On the top right corner of this "text-frame" there's a small icon with a pencil. If you click on it, a pop up window that allows you to edit the whole card opens and you can type in DEPRBODY. I just verified this.

Also, you could avoid to use BOX if you define the slanted planes within a "$start_transform / $end_transform" instruction. This would require to add a ROT-DEFI card defining a rotation around the y axis, which is pretty straightforward.


XYP plane_at_0_deg

YZP plane_at_90_deg

$start_transform rot90deg

XYP plane_at_45_deg

YZP plane_at_135_deg

Give it a try, it's easier done than said.

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_01D50983.621C1130]
