Dear Sir, I am calculating surface dose rate of filter by using usrtrack card for 662KeV gamma photon energy. i want to know what is normalization factor used for calculating dose in mR/h from usertrack output.
In order to help you, you should provide a few more details. Are you using a primary beam of photon or are you simulating the Cesium-137 decay?
It is not clear to me also why you want to use USRTRACK rather than built-in scoring to estimate dose rate.
I would suggest you to have a look at the lectures on scoring and on activation from the last Fluka course.
Hello expert, I did the simulation to measure the DOSE of the cylinder (on contact and 1m ) drums filled with water and equivalent Dose also using usrtrack card. I used 10E5 primary histories and energy of 662KeV gamma photon Beam.
- I scored Dose and dose-eq In usrtrack card.
- both scoring outputs are different in the unit.
Doses will be expressed in GeV/g per unit primary weight.
To obtain the dose in Gy, multiply GeV/g by 1.602176462E-7.
Dose eq will be expressed in psv per unit primary weight.
- I want to calculate Dose in Gy/h in both cases. suggest correct normalization factor
for both cases.
- Radiation factor of the gamma photon is 1. so Dose and dose-eq both are the same
in the case of the gamma photon.
will Fluka give the same Dose Result in both cases after the normalization factor
In order to let other people understand your study case, it’s always better to share your input. Would you mind sharing your .flair file?
