Abstract

Using the AIRES code and three hadronic interaction models, a simulation study of the energy of created particles due to the development of an extensive air shower was carried out (EPOS-LHC, QGSJET-II-04, and Sibyll2.3c). The main focus is put on the energy of the create particles as a function of depth for (12C,56Fe, p, and 28Si) primary particles with high primary energies (1017,1018,1019, and 1020) eV with two zenith angles  0° and 30°.  The New parameters were obtained by fitting the energy of created particles curves using Gaussian and linear functions for created particles, initiated by primary particles at the energy 1020 eV.  Good agreement was obtained by comparing the present results with results simulated by CORSIKA simulation for primary proton at the energy 1019 eV
