McStas: Dose_calculator Component

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Output parameters | Links ]

The Dose_calculator Component

Calculating dose rate at the outer surface of lateral shielding of uniform thickness made of material specified in the component input (concrete, iron or lead). Shielding starts at a distance 0.5*Innerspace from the center of the guide.


  • Author: Rodion Kolevatov
  • Origin: IFE
  • Date: August 2018
  • Version: 1.0


A Shielding_logger together with a set of Shielding_iterators is required.
Iterators should contain Monitor_nD components for recording capture rates.
