Heavy Recoil Nuclei

Hello Everyone,

I am performing a simulation whereby the target is being irradiated by low enegry neutrons (with energy on the order of hundreds of
keV) and I am looking to tally the kinetic energy deposited by the following particles:

- Secondary protons
- Secondary alpha particles from (n,alpha) reactions
- Secondary Carbon, Oxygen, and Nitrogen recoil nuclei produced by neutron elastic scattering

With this being said, I set my PART-THR card to be as follows:

PART-THR -1.0E-6 -6.0 1.0 1.0

The -6.0 to 1.0 entries will set the transport threshold for protons and alphas to 1 keV. Will this card also set this 1 keV
threshold for the C, O, and N recoil nuclei? The reason why I ask is because Table 5.1 of the latest user manual does not indicate
the FLUKA number for heavy recoil nuclei.

I would appreciate any response.
