Simulation of the Atmospheric Muon Flux with CORSIKA
T. Djemil, R. Attallah, J.-N. Capdevielle1, 2

We present in this paper the results of 3D-calculation of the atmospheric muon flux at different altitudes. We have used for this purpose the extensive air shower simulation package CORSIKA (v. 6.031) in combination with the hadronic interaction models VENUS (v. 4.12) at high energy (beyond 80 GeV) and GHEISHA (v. 2002) and UrQMD (v. 1.1) at lower energy. Our results are compared to data from different experiments (CAPRICE, BESS and HEAT). The correlation of the atmospheric muon flux to the primary zenith angle and primary energy is also investigated.
