DOSE in activation

Dear FLUKA experts,

I’m working on activation project and I have doubts about proper scoring.

I try to calculate absorbed dose rate. I used USRBIN with DOSE and connect it to DCYSCORE. In manual DOSE score GeV/g/primary. My question is: if I connected it to DCYSCORE it’s now score Gev/g/s (similar to DOSE-EQ with DCYSCORE (pSv/primary convert to pSv/s))?

Best regards,

Dear @magdalena.dobrzynska,

For activation studies, when using DCYSCORE, all quantities are expressed “per unit time”, that is per second. In the case of DOSE, you will have a dose rate [GeV/g/s]. In the case of DOSE-EQ, you’ll have [pSv/s].
