  • Content Description: With a goal to develop a nuclear cross-section code usable over the wide energy range of 1 MeV to 5 GeV, one option is to combine intranuclear cascade, pre-equilibrium, and Hauser-Feshbach models in existing codes. However, the first two models are semi-classical while the third one is quantum mechanical, and combining them is not straightforward because the third model requires spin and parity distributions for all excited states that cannot be supplied by either one of the first two models. Approximations to overcome this difficulty are described in this paper. Success of this combined model will allow nuclear data evaluations for a large number of materials whose cross sections are needed in a wide range of applications, including the design, operation, and future upgrades of the SNS (1 GeV proton). The incident particles may be neutrons, protons, charged pions, or photons. Though only partially completed at this time, the new model compares well with experimental radionuclide production cross sections from thresholds to 2.6 GeV for proton-induced reactions on Fe.
