A radioactivity calculation code system DCHAIN-SP was validated in view of the following points: (1) Activation cross section data library for the energy region below 20 MeV. (2) NMTC/JAM code for calculation of the nuclide yield induced by the high energy particles above 20 MeV. (3) DCHAIN-SP code system which treats overall nuclide yield by the high energy particles. 42 of activation cross sections and 22 tritium production cross sections were revised so that the DCHAIN-SP calculation could improve its accuracy within 30% for typical materials irradiated by 14-MeV neutrons. The NMTC/JAM code was improved to implement the GEM model for better estimation of light fragment production. Accuracy of the nuclide yield for proton induced reactions in 10 MeV - 10 GeV still remains in the level of a factor of 2 to 3. The DCHAIN-SP code system was employed for the analysis of time evolution of the radioactivity produced in the samples on a thick mercury target bombarded with 2.83 and 24 GeV protons. It is found that the code system agrees with the measured data by a factor of 2 to 3.
