Ongoing Geant4 and FLUKA comparison (and development)

Working Group Goals and People

  • Vitaly Kudryavtsev (The University of Sheffield)
  • Anton Empl (University of Arkansas at Little Rock)
  • Sarah Lindsay (University of Arkansas at Little Rock)
  • Anthony Villano (University of Minnesota)
  • Allison Kennedy (University of Minnesota)
  • Chamkaur Ghag (University College London)

To produce a coherent Geant4 to FLUKA comparison across most modern versions of the codes and including all observables related to cosmogenic neturon production. In addition a detailed understanding of the modeling approaches used in each of the codes is desired.

Help to improve FLUKA physics relevant to the simulation of cosmogenic muon-induced backgounds at deep underground facilities. Investigate a FLUKA user interface/framework for cosmogenic background simulation.

Initial Comparison

The initial comparision includes one suggested by Vitaly Kudryavtsev, to observe the simulations for monoenergetic muons at several energies traversing large homogeneous media of various compositions which are of interest to underground science.
