None Decays of Th234/Pa234[73.92]/U234

Dear Geant4 users,

Iím using Geant4 10.1 with the accompanied data libraries and I want to simulate the radioactive decay of Th234. To do this I use the example program rdecay01 with the attached macro file, which is similar to the one posted in message 1451 of this forum. Based on [R.B. Firestone: Table of Isotopes] I would expect that the metastable daughter nucleus Pa234[73.92] mainly decays into U234 (>98%). Thatís also how I understood the file RadioactiveDecay4.2/z91.a234. However, according to the simulation Pa234[73.92] only decays to the Pa234 ground state, please see the attached output file. I would be very grateful if you could help me to explain and to fix this discrepancy.

Kind regards Holger
