Dear V. Petrosyan,

yes, you can evaluate with FLUKA the residual dose rate as a function of a
given irradiation profile and at different cooling times.
To learn how I would suggest to go through the dedicated lectures of the
FLUKA course, that you can find for example here:
Look at the meaning of the cards RADDECAY, IRRPROFI, DCYTIMES and DCYSCORE.
In the lecture that follows you can find also a useful exercise.

About the second question:
"make FLUKA calculation more accurate and precise" is a quite generic
Also in this case, I would suggest to give a look at the a course lecture:
especially slide 5 and slide 14-16. Be aware, for example, about what it
means the use of the card DEFAULT with the last argument (sdum in the FLUKA
language) PRECISION.

Kind regards,
