In order to facilitate three-dimensional analyses of space radiation shielding scenarios for future space missions, the Monte Carlo radiation transport code HETC is being extended to include transport of energetic heavy ions, such as are found in the galactic cosmic ray spectrum in space. Recently, an event generator capable of providing nuclear interaction data for use in HETC was developed and incorporated into the code. The event generator predicts the interaction product yields and… CONTINUE READING
