Background: In an electron beam experiment, electrons accelerated in electromagnetic field have different kinds of velocities and angles. However, in early numerical simulation calculations, the electron beam is always supposed to perpendicularly hit the surface of target materials, which will cause biases between simulations and experiments. Purpose: In this paper, a new method has been given to calculate energy deposition profile of intense pulsed electron beam which may explain the biases. Methods: MCNP (Monte Carlo N Particle Transport Code) is used to study metals such as aluminum, cuprum and tantalum. The differences between electron beam perpendicular to material and the one with angle distribution were worked out. Results: The results show that the energy deposition peak of pulsed electron beam with angular distribution is smaller than that of electron beam which is perpendicular. Conclusion: This may explain the biases between simulations and experiments.
