Calculation of the Average Properties of Hadronic Cascades at High Energies (CASIM)
CASIM1 is a Monte Carlo program which simulates the average development of internuclear cascades when high energy hadrons (10–1000 GeV) are incident on large targets. The program computes such desiderata as star densities, momentum spectra of interacting particles and energy deposited by the cascade as a function of location throughout the target. From these quantities,effects of interest in radiobiological protection, radiation damage, accelerator design, detector development, etc., can be estimated. CASIM is sufficiently general to apply to cascades in heterogeneous targets, arbitrary geometries and the presence of magnetic fields. Only the less conventional features of the program will be discussed here.
