About the "Source Definition" category

Category for questions concerning built-in source options, like particle beams, hadron-hadron collisions or isotropic sources.

You are not sure how to set an arbitrary beam direction? You are unsure if your beam setup is correct? You want to simulate a radioactive source but you don’t know how? Then this category is the right one to post your question.

FLUKA commands typically covered in this category are:

  • Beam definition: BEAM, BEAMPOS, BEAMAXES, HI-PROPE
  • Special sources: SPECSOUR
  • Radioisotope sources: RADDECAY

Please note that customized sources based on user routines are discussed in the “Advanced features and user routines” category.
