Abstract : The report is the result of a study to provide some of the basic nuclear data necessary for space radiation shielding calculations. Both experimental data and information generated by Monte Carlo calculations are used in the analysis. Empirical relations derived from these data are presented for non-elastic cross sections, cascade yields, residual nuclear excitation, evaporation yields and secondary energy and angular distributions. These results provide a model for calculating the cross sections for production of secondary nucleons by high energy nucleons striking complex nuclei. (Author)
