Dear Rogerio,

In FLUKA individual interactions which results in very low energy transfer to matter are treated using an averaged continuous energy
loss approach along the particle track (ionization losses for charged particles for example)
. Other interactions are leading to significant energy transfer are treated individually, it is why you have to values reflecting
the two transport approaches in the USERDUMP output file=20
Hoping this help

I have a doubt!
Could you help me?
The output file userdump (collision tape) produces data concerning continuous energy deposition and data concerning local (point)
energy deposition. My question is how these two data sets are related! What is the difference between the two data sets? To have
true energy deposited in a detector should I add the two energies? I've tried that but the result was inconsistent!
I await your answers!

Thank you for your attention!
