18.104.22.168 Computer simulation of high energy cascades
This chapter discusses computer simulation of high energy cascades. From computer simulation details of cascade evolution in time and space can be obtained. The only experimental technique which can supply detailed atomistic information on cascade structure is FIM, but due to its experimental expenditure it has been applied only to very few cascades in W and Pt. Typical numbers of Frenkel pairs NFP, numbers of subcascades NSC, and maximum cascade diameters dmax of calculated cascades of energy E is listed.
