[fluka-discuss]: Neutron Fluence

Dear Fluka experts,

I want to score neutron fluence of a simple geometry. The result is several orders of magnitude higher than my team and I would expect it to be.
I shoot protons with 800 MeV on a lead target. The USRTRCK detector around the target detects a fluence around 10^5 at a certain neutron energy.
Actually we would expect it to much lower. We checked for errors in the geometry (therefore we highly simplified it), the materials and the volume parameter,
But either we couldn't find mistakes or we corrected them and it didn't influence the result that much.

Do you have any idea, where else the problem (that huge) could be?

I put the files in the following link:

thanks for your help!

Best regards,
Michael Bauer
