Short description: The code calculates the energy deposited along depth in water by different particle beams. The radial acceptance of the scoring volume is set in accordance to the experimental measurements (see reference data). The scoring volume thickness is also chosen according to the water equivalent thickness of the ionization chambers used in the experiments.
