Thank you so much for your fast reply. I tried to run Hadr03 and Hadr04 examples to figure it out. In both trials, I tried to set G4_Gd as material. The input and output files of my trials are available from the attachments. Even there exist results, I am a bit confused about how to read them. "hadr03_n.in" and "hadr04_n.in" are the inputs for 10 MeV neutron on G4_Gd for Hadr03 and Hadr04 examples, respectively. "hadr03_n_out.txt" and "hadr04_n_out.txt" are the outputs.
From "hadr03_n_out.txt"; MeanFreePath: 6.8409 cm +- 6.8135 cm massic: 54.046 g/cm2 CrossSection: 0.14618 cm^-1 massic: 1.8503 mm2/g crossSection per atom: 4.8315 barn
From "hadr04_n_out.txt"; Parcours of incident neutron: nb of collisions E>1*eV= 1.05 E<1*eV= 1 total= 2.05 track length E>1*eV= 6.9537 cm E<1*eV= 6.9865 cm total= 13.94 cm time of flight E>1*eV= 1.6037 ns E<1*eV= 1.6116 ns total= 3.2154 ns
As you mentioned before, hadr03 gives the meen free path and hadr04 gives information about the parcours of neutrons. So, which value should I accept as the maximum penetrating distance; mean free path from Hadr03 or track lenght from Hadr04 ?
Also, I would like to make clear one more topic. I tried Hadr03, Hadr04 and TestEm0 for 10 MeV protons on G4_Gd. The input and output files of those trials are also available from the attachments. TestEm0 uses EM standard physics list and shows the stopping power and range on the output file. Results from it are in agreement with the data taken from PSTAR(NIST) yet there is no any agreement with the results obtained via Hadr03 and Hadr04 examples. Is this due to the physics lists used in the examples or am I doing something wrong? This might be a silly question but please enlighten me.
