New Features of the INCL4 Model for Spallation Reactions
- The standard version (INCL4.2) of the Liege Intra-nuclear Cascade modelfor spallation reactions has been shown to reproduce reasonably well a largeset of experimental data, when coupled to the standard ABLA model. However,some systematic deficiencies were surviving. In order to reduce the latter,an improved model (INCL4.5) has been worked out. The improvements of themodel are described here for the first time. They involve in particular theproduction of composite particles in the cascade and the behaviour of themodel at low incident energy. Typical results are shown and discussed.
