Features

  • Installer
  • Simple ready-to-run examples included in distribution
  • .SPC file support, compability to TRiP and libamtrack.
  • Cleanup of code, increasing compiler and platform portability
  • Code can now be compiled with optimizations and several compilers (tested with gfortran, Intel and Portland)
  • Large speedup of code by switching to faster random number generator
  • Large speedup due to new super-fast Vavilov straggling routine
  • GSI Ripple filter support
  • Arbitrary primary beam direction, square and circular flat beams.
  • More realistic beam models, now with divergence and focus distance (positive or negative focus)
  • Extended ICRU material data base included, giving access to I-values and elemental compositions of 279 materials
  • external stopping power files can be generated and read for 279 ICRU materials, using various stopping power tables from libdEdx.
  • Parallelization on CONDOR and TORQUE systems
  • New scoring systems, inspired by FLUKAs USRBIN card (no need to specify 1000 regions for scoring a depth-dose curve)
  • New format for input files, easy to understand and simple to use
  • SOBP source files can be read (compatible with the script from auflukatools), so TRiP generated plans can be recalculated.
  • Update of physics models for Carbon-12 beams
  • Plenty of bug fixes
  • 3D visualization of geometries via a tool for converting the geometry to FLUKA like code which can be understood by SimpleGEO.
  • Scoring types:
  • ENERGY: deposited energy per bin.
  • DOSE: ENERGY / VOLUME * RHO
  • FLUENCE: TL / VOLUME
  • CROSSFLU: number of particles entering bin
  • LETFLU: LET(mat) * FLU
  • DLET: sum(LET * LET * FLU ) / sum(LET * FLU) This is dose average LET
  • TLET: sum(LET * FLU ) / sum(FLU) This is track average LET
  • AVG-ENERGY: track length averaged particle energy
  • AVG-BETA: track length averaged particle velocity relative to the speed of light.
  • ALANINE: calculate dose equivalent response in alanine detectors.
  • PET: number of stopping PET isotopes (positron emitters)
  • English manual
