Dear Fluka experts,
One of the radiation beams I want to assess is hydrogen. However, when checking the option list of ‘Part:’ of the BEAM card, I cannot find hydrogen among them. Should an extra card be used such as with HEAVYION needing a HI-PROPE in the case of a hydrogen beam?
Thanks in advance!
Sorry if I misunderstood your question, but I think this is pretty straightforward.
If by “hydrogen beam” you meant the beam of protons, than this is the
PROTON option in the
BEAM card. You can’t define hydrogen as an atom, but you can define
PROTON (which is hydrogen without electron), also, yo can use
DEUTERON, which is nucleus of deuterium (heavy hydrogen) and
TRITON, the nucleus of tritium (one proton and two neutrons, which still a hydrogen).
You did not misunderstood it, thank you for the very clear and quick answer!
Have a great day!
