Subject: Re: [fluka-discuss]: Scattering Length

Dear Hannah,
      the calculation of scattering lengths in Fluka is based on the seminal work by J. Ranft and collaborators in the 70s and was updated in the modern releases. The basic definitions can be found in the literature: look at the history of Fluka section in the manual and at the references by J. Ranft therein.

A good starting point might be:
J. Ranft
Estimation of radiation problems around high energy accelerators using calculations of the hadronic cascade in matter Part. Accel. 3, 129--161 (1972)

Hope this helps.
Kind regards,
