Question Charge exchange processes 

Forum: Hadronic Processes
Date: 22 Jun, 2015
From: Roberta Volpe <Roberta Volpe>

Dear experts,
I am new in both geant4 and nuclear physics and I am trying to simulate a beam of high energy protons (400 GeV) 
impinging a Be target.
Since I got weird results (secondary yields lower than expected), I started to look for information and I have read in 
old hypernews and other documentation that the charge-exchange processes are not properly simulated.
Did I understand well?
I am using the the GEANT4 release 10.0.p02 and for now my PhysicsList is

 RegisterPhysics(new G4DecayPhysics());
 RegisterPhysics(new G4EmStandardPhysics());
 RegisterPhysics( new G4HadronElasticPhysics(verb) );
 RegisterPhysics( new G4HadronPhysicsFTFP_BERT_HP(verb)); 
 RegisterPhysics( new G4IonPhysics(verb));
[I tried to add
RegisterPhysics( new G4ChargeExchangePhysics(verb));
but it doesn't compile ]

Is there any important process I missed?
Regarding the charge-exchange processes, is there any workaround I could use?

Thank you in advance for your help,
regards,
Roberta
