Dear Riya Dey,
for the scoring you can use the USRBIN with WHAT(1) = 8.
More details in the manual and from the slides about advanced geometry topics
pages 51-52.

Hope this could help.
Best, luigi

Thank you for your help. The issue is solved. Now I can see spheres in the proto type as well as in the replicated regions. I have one more doubt regarding SCORING in the lattice region

Since, no region name has been assigned for spheres in the replicated region, now if I want to score energy or fluence in a sphere in the replicated region, how can I call it in the scoring card? Let’s say I want to score energy in all the spheres inside the replicated as well as proto type region. What should I put in WHAT (1) card (TYPE)?

Thanks and Regards

Dear FLUKA Experts,

A sample input using LATTICE card is attached here. My intention is to replicate the region called “BOUND” (which is an RPP) in 6 directions with transformations delta x = + 0.5 , delta x = - 0.5; delta y = + 0.5 , delta y = - 0.5; delta z = + 0.5 , delta z = - 0.5 .

In the input I have made two replicas considering transformations delta x = + 0.5 and delta z = + 0.5. I have the following doubts:

1. For every replication, I am adding one ROT-DEFI card; start transform card and end transform card; within which I am adding the proto type regions and giving them different names for replication; next regions with the names of proto type and the replicated regions are defined in the region card; one lattice card is added for every replication with different transformation index. At the same time all these regions (proto type and the replicated regions) should be omitted from the void region.

Is this the correct way of lattice replication? Because if there are many prototype regions which need to be replicated 5 times in all 6 direction, then it will end up with a messy input with lot of different replicated region names. Is there any other way of replication by adding single transform card (at least along each axis) ?

For the replicas, you need only in external container bodies (REPBOUND and REPBOUN1 in your input.
No need to replicate the spheres inside. All geometry details need to be defined for the basic unit only.
This is actually the purpose of the lattice!

In addition, there was an error in the LATTICE card definition: you need to use the inverse transformation that is the one bringing from the replica to the basic unit.

See these modifications implemented in the attached input file.

2. While viewing the geometry, the material in the replicated region is showing vacuum although water is assigned in both proto type and replicated regions . Does this mean that the replication is not correctly done?

You need to switch to lattice layer to see inside the replica. See attached snapshot.

Thanks and Regards
