Dear Sanjay,

can you be a little more specific?
- How large is the "large number of chunks"? Hundreds? Thousands? Millions?
- Have they all the same shape? Is it a simple shape?
- How small are the "small pieces?", with respect to the size of the drum?
If the number of the pieces is very large, and they are much smaller than the drum, and if the only thing you are interested in is the neutron attenuation, you can define a material of average density, for instance by defining a COMPOUND made of air and metal.

Dear all
           I want to simulate a number of small pieces of metal chunks enclosed in a drum. the Drum is half filled with such type of material, this geometry to see the neutron attenuation due to this material.
 do i have to create such large number of chunks or i can do this with the lattice card?

Thanks in advance
