Description: The High-Energy Transport Code HETC has been revised by incorporating a multi-chain fragmentation model to describe particle production from high-energy hadron-nucleus collisions. The revised code is briefly described and its validity is tested by comparing calculated results with experimental data from 29.4 GeV protons incident on an iron-air beam stop and with experimental data from 800 GeV protons incident on a large iron block. Some comparisons with calculated results obtained with other available transport codes; FLUKA82, CASIM, and MARS10 are also included. 18 refs., 3 figs.
