The 232Th(p,xn) and 232Th(p,np) cross sections for incident proton energies in the range of 10 to 1600 MeV have been calculated by using a cascade-exiton model (CEM) combining essential features of the exciton model and intranuclear cascade models. The level density parameter effects are investigated. The calculation results are compared with the available measured data.
