In Mulassis and GRAS we tend to use a method that involves the folding of the shielded environment spectrum with the NIEL curve. This produces the TNID (Total Non-Ionising Dose) at the surface between two volumes. As most TNID effects are manifested in optical components (solar cells, opto-couplers, etc) the sensitive volume is usually very thin (unlike for human effects) and this approximation works very well.
So, to achieve this, we calculate the fluence of particles crossing the surface, weighting the particles by 1/cosine of the angle of incidence. This shielded fluence spectrum is then folded with the relevant NIEL curve.

Laurent Desorgher did implement such a method in Gras, which is in the v3.4 release: /gras/analysis/nid
