Abstract
PHITS, a general-purpose Particle and Heavy Ion Transport code System, has been used for various research fields such as radiation science, accelerator and its shielding design, space research, medical application and material research. In this paper, we present an overview of the PHITS code, particularly the heavy ion reaction model included in the code and the capability of the transport of charged particles and heavy ions under magnetic field and discuss the applicability of the PHITS code to heavy ion accelerator facilities by showing some examples of the analysis.
