Four widespread used Monte Carlo simulation and transport codes, including GEANT4, FLUKA, MCNPX, and PHITS, are employed to calculate the integrated depth dose curves inside a water phantom for proton radiotherapy, and the results are compared with the experimental data carried out at the ProCure proton therapy center in New Jersey, USA. This is a collaborative study of JAEA, National Tsing Hua University, and ProCure proton therapy center, and this study aims to provide practical information regarding the accuracy and computing efficiency of each Monte Carlo codes for code users as well as the benchmark for further model improvement in each code.
