Abstract. The aim of this work to investigate the impact of the radiation damage in the materials by the proton energy irradiation. The damage parameter used in the evaluation is displacement per atom (DPA) in material as a function of proton energy. Stopping and Range of Ions in Matter (SRIM) code was used to calculate the total vacancy and the number of atomic displacements based on the Norgett-Robinson-Torrens model by difference energies for proton irradiation damage. The option of this code was calculated by using Ion Distribution and Quick Calculation of Damage (Kinchin-Pease) for Fe and Cu target and also Full damage cascade (F-C) was chosen for only Fe. The result is that, the prediction of the F-C model are higher than the K-P calculation. Comparisons has been made with an international standard definition of DPA.
