FLUKA: Particle Simulations at Your Fingertips

Success Story

Application Domains

In 2016, there were eleven requests for FLUKA licences. Mainly from companies performing shielding studies, but also from some in the field of safety, inspection and auditing that requested the technology, as well as companies working in radio-protection related to dismantling activated industrial facilities. Out of these, two licence agreements were signed and an extension was made to an agreement with a large industrial company which uses FLUKA for a particle therapy centre. One licence was given to a company fingerprinting natural and man-made gemstones using X-ray diffraction techniques, a rather original use of the simulation package.
