Question Track length estimate of fluence

I am interested in registering the fluence as a track length estimate, of different kind of secondary particles produced by a monoenergetic proton beam impinging in thin (1mm) slices that I set as sensitive detectors. I think this could be useful to be done (am I right?) in "void mySteppingAction::UserSteppingAction(const G4Step* aStep)". This method is in myTargetSD where in fact I am scoring the TotalEnergyDeposit total and for each particle with TrackID!=1. My question is: Is there exist any method which I could use to get the information about the track-length estimate of flux in my sensitive detector class?. If not, please..could somebody suggest me any way to carry out this task?

Another simple question:

It is not clear for me if the "GetTotalEnergyDeposit" for a determine sensitive detector, scores the energy deposited as a track-length estimate. In that case, can I assume this energy as an volume average deposited energy?

Thank you in advance,
