---------------------- A very similar interface has been developed by Francesco Cerutti (University of Milan and INFN), Toni Empl (University of Houston), Alfredo Ferrari, Maria Vittoria Garzelli (University of Milan and INFN) and Johannes Ranft, with the Relativistic Quantum Molecular Dynamics code (RQMD) of H. Sorge. Also in this case the evaporation and deexcitation of the excited residuals is performed by FLUKA. Significant intervention on the original code were necessary to bring under control the energy/momentum balance of each interaction to allow for a meaningful excitation energy calculation. This brand new development allows FLUKA to be used for ions from roughly 100 MeV/n up to cosmic ray energies. The results of this modified model can be found in [Aig05, And04, Fas03]. Work is in progress to develop new original code to replace this RQMD interface.
