Sensitivity of atmospheric muon flux calculation to low energy hadronic interaction models
T. Djemil, R. Attallah, J.-N. Capdevielle1

We investigate in this paper the impact of some up-to-date hadronic interaction models on the calculation of the atmospheric muon flux. Calculations are carried out with the air shower simulation code CORSIKA in combination with the hadronic interaction models FLUKA and UrQMD below 80 GeV/nucleon and NEXUS elsewhere. We also examine the atmospheric effects using two different parametrizations of the US standard atmosphere. The cosmic ray spectra of protons and α particles, the only primary particles considered here, are taken according to the force field model which describes properly solar modulation. Numerical results are compared with the BESS-2001 experimental data.
