Abstract
An event generator based on the CHIPS model is implemented in the GEANT4 simulation toolkit. Nuclear fragment production in the process of pion capture on nuclei is used to tune the parameters of the CHIPS model describing clusterization of nucleons in nuclei. The spectra of nucleons and nuclear fragments in pion capture and in photonuclear reactions at 60 MeV are compared with experimental data.
