It must be remembered that the shieldose spherical shell method is derived from an analytical expression from the slab geometry. (See the various Shieldose references from the SPENVIS website).
Reproducing the spherical shell results is prone to difficulties.
Another difference in the simulation to consider: shieldose gives results for infinitesimally small targets (Si, SiO2, etc.). The target must be "insignificantly" small, yet you have to be able to hit it enough to get good statistics.
Additionally, the dose for the slab geometries is calculated from the shielded flux spectrum exiting the slab thickness folded with the dE/dX curve of the target - the target itself is not included in the simulation.

If it is a simple result that you wish, then I'd recommend using Mulassis (also available to run on SPENVIS, and source code/local installation is available from the QinetiQ site). I've made comparable simulations to SHIELDOSE using Mulassis (particularly for protons, electrons requires some playing with the energy biasing to get a good statistical sampling of the effects of the various energy ranges).

You do realise that for the slab or spherical geometry that you have to run the complete simulation for each of the shielding thicknesses in the curve? This can be a bit tedious (and slow) :-(.

Yes. but the simulation isn't an exact match to the SHIELDOSE geometry.
