Abstract

In the present work, extensive air showers (EAS) effects are described by estimating the longitudinal development model of EAS at very high energies of various cosmic ray particles. The longitudinal development was simulated for charged particles such as gamma, charged pions and charged muons at very high energies 1017, 1018 and 1019eV. The simulation was performed using an air shower simulator system (AIRES) version 19.04.0. The effect of primary particles, energies, thinning energy and zenith angle (θ) on the number of charged particles (longitudinal development) produced in the EAS was taken into account. The rapprochement of the estimated longitudinal development of the charged particles such as the charged muons and charged pions with the experimental measurements (AUGER experiment) that gave a good agreement for primary proton at the fixed primary energy 1019eV for θ =0˚.
