Dose calculation

Dear experts,

I’m using FLUKA to estimate the dose deposed by a bunch of relativistic electrons (10 to 200 MeV) in a glass cell fulled by water. Which FLUKA Default do you think could be the more appropriate for this configuration? ( I have tried a couple of them (PRECISIO and CALORIME) without observing any difference on the dose value).
Thanks in advance.


Dear Tibe68,

the PRECISIO setting on the DEFAULTS card, has the lowest particle thresholds and the most physics setting enabled.

I would recommend to always use it, and tune the parameters / enabled physics if necessary.

Here you can find the thresholds and enabled physics options for each setting:


Hi David,

thanks a lot!
