[fluka-discuss]: Thermal neutron fluence using USRBDX scoring

Dear fluka experts,

I have a cylinder of H2O and a beam of thermal neutrons that hits on it...
Inside the water cylinder there is a small thin box made of Cobalt (target) which
is next to a Germanium cylinder...
Using USRBDX scoring -one way- , I would like to demonstrate that the flux of neutrons from H20
that hit the Cobalt target is smaller with the presence of the germanium cylinder.

But the results as you can see at the attached picture are the opposite...

Why is that?

Is any other way to conclude concerning the effect of Ge in the neutron flux on the Co target?

Thanks a lot in advance

Best regards
