Re: Data of USRBIN + AUXSCORE identical to just USRBIN

your results are identical because the USRBIN with SDUM "ndose", that is
the one you are using to score the dose, is scoring NEUTRON fluence and
the AUXSCORE card does not make any effect on it. You have to score
DOSE-EQ as generalized particle in the USRBIN, and then the AUXSCORE
card properly defined in your input file will produce the result you
want, that is the neutron ambient dose equivalent. The same for photons,
