The predictions for the production of nuclides and particles in proton-induced reactions are important e.g. for the detailed design of spallation neutron sources or accelerator-driven-systems. Computational tools are required that are able to describe quantitatively the two-stage process i.e. intra-nuclear cascade followed by evaporation-fission. The first stage is a highly non-equilibrated process in which incoming proton deposits in hot residual nucleus both excitation energy and angular momentum. The CBUU transport model calculation for few targets, for the proton energy range 0.4-2.0 GeV are presented, with the idea to find global parametrizations for the distributions of charge, mass, excitation energy, angular momentum of hot residual nuclei.
