We develop a new quantum molecular dynamics (QMD) type nuclear transport code to simulate heavy-ion collisions for RAON, a new accelerator complex under construction in Korea. At RAON, the rare isotope beams with energies from a few MeV/n to a few hundreds MeV/n will be utilized. QMD is one of the widely used theoretical methods and is useful for both theoretical and experimental purposes. We describe our QMD model with the numerical realization. The validity of the code is tested by comparing our simulation results with experimental data and also results from other transport codes in 197Au+197Au collisions at Elab = 90 - 120 MeV/n. Finally, we present a brief discussion on applicability and outlook of our code.
