Dear FLUKA team,

While installing FLUKA i am having problem with gcc or g-fortran error comes out, can you please tell me how to deal with it? should i need to install fortran in linux system and then installing FLUKA?

I highly appreciated if you could guide me step by step.

Many thanks for your help.

Hi arghyac,

    The way I would do this is sample randomly the direction of the particle. Then you can use the script as it is, except the directions will change for every particle sent to the stack. Please, take a careful look at this lecture<> from the latest Fluka Advanced Course.
    Bur for short, every time you generate a particle, you need to generate two different random numbers $r_1$, $r_2$ and then their relations to $\theta$ and $\phi$ will be:

    $$\phi = 2 \pi r_1$$

    $$\cos{ \theta} = 2 r_2 - 1$$

then you just assign the directions using on those values:


    The effect now is that particles will be sampled from different positions (each different source) and will have different directions every time, but uniform in direction (isotropic).

Dear Fluka experts,
   The attached sample source.f file I have seen. Three point sources are there directed along X, Y and Z directions. Now suppose all the three sources are isotropic and cylindrical. In that case how to sample using source.f. Any suggestion will be welcome.

  Thanking you in advance.

Dear Zhefu,

 Yes you need to use source.f routine to simulate this. You have to
modify it to sample particles coming from each source, and using the
corresponding source's parameters (energy, position, particle type,
 As for the different intensities, you can simply sample from each
source with different frequencies, according to their intensities; for
example if source X is twice as intense as source Y then make sure to
sample twice from X as many samples you do for Y.

 Here attached you can find a modified source.f where I set three
sources and sample from each of them. It assumes all the sources emit
the same particle (defined in the input with the BEAM card) and a
monoenergetic beam. But you can easily extend from there to a more
general case.

Dear all,

My problem is concerned with three different sources with different
beam intensities hit one same target at the same time.

Maybe the problem could be solved in source.f file, but I am not
quite sure.

I have two questions to consult you:
1)how to define three different beam intensities in source.f file.

2)how to define three different sources hit the same target at the
same time.

Any help will be appreciated and thanks in advance!
