Dear FLUKA experts,
I’m trying to score LET distribution of primary and secondary particles in a water phantom (with incident carbon ions).
I used fluscw.f and GETLET function to obtain the LET factor.
I found that when a secondary particle with ID<-6, AM(JTRACK) does not work. In this case, instead I used pheavy(-JTRACK) and tkheav(-JTRACK) to obtain the momentum and kinetic energy of the current particle. And then used
to obtain the LET factor.
I’d like to confirm whether the above treatment is correct.
Moreover, when I print ETRACK and PTRACK in this case (with JTRACK<-6), ETRACK is always equal to AMNHEA(-JTRACK), which is the mass of the current particle, and PTRACK is always zero.
I’m thinking that when dealing with heavy ions (JTRACK<-6), only JTRACK works to reveal the particle ID, and one should ONLY obtain the kinetic energy and momentum of the current particle from tkheav(-JTRACK),pheavy(-JTRACK). Is it correct?
plus, to my understanding, I also have to consider the case of JTRACK >200, here I only have to substitute JTRACK with J0TRCK and use the “normal” way as shown in the figure below
I have attached my .inp and fluscw.f files.
Thank you very much!
