Re: Question INCLXX warning message in Hadr03 (Sergio Lo Meo)

Hi Sergio,

That message indicates that INCL++ was not able to generate an inelastic event for the given projectile within a reasonable number of trials (200). This happens, for instance, when the projectile energy is below INCL++'s internal Coulomb barrier, which was probably the case for the proton you mentioned. The same problem can actually happen for neutrons too, at lower energies.

There is not really much that can be done about this. The messages should anyway be infrequent, since they correspond to a somewhat limiting situation (the energy is lower than INCL++'s internal barrier but Geant4's reaction cross section is not zero). You should probably worry about them only if you think your calculation results might be sensitive to reactions in this small energy window around the barrier.

Cheers, Davide
