Abstract

The high-energy transport code calculates a nuclear reaction in two steps. There are considerable discrepancies in both mass yield and neutron energy spectrum of spallation reactions between calculated and experimental results. An intermediate process with three adjustable parameters is incorporated into the code as an additional calculation step to remedy the disagreement. The original rapid computation speed is maintained. The agreement between calculated and experimental results is considerably improved with a single set of parameters.
