To provide the athermal recombination corrected dpa (arc-dpa) cross sections for proton, deuteron and heavy ion irradiations in the energy range from 1 MeV/u to 3 GeV/u., the defect production efficiencies for aluminium, copper and tungsten were implemented in the radiation damage model in PHITS. In general, the dpa cross section is large with increasing the number of protons of incident particle. For high-energy (around 1 GeV/u) proton and deuteron irradiation, the dpa cross section is close to that under 12C irradiation due to secondaries produced by the nuclear reaction. The ratio of arc-dpa cross section to the conventional Norgett-Robinson-Torrens dpa (NRT-dpa) cross section is around 0.2 with incident energies over 100 MeV for proton and deuteron irradiations. For the case of 12C and 48Ca, this ratio is ranged from 0.3 to 0.4 for incident beam energies below 3 GeV/u.
