Toward deuteron nuclear data evaluation, we have been developing a code system dedicated for deuteron-induced reactions, called DEURACS. In this paper, we review the recent progress in the development of DEURACS. To meet increasing and diversifying demands for deuteron nuclear data, DEURACS has been developed aiming at accurate and comprehensive prediction of deuteron-induced reactions. We present the results of some comparisons between the DEURACS calculations and experimental data for a variety of deuteron-induced reactions at incident energies up to 200 MeV. Double-differential cross sections for emission of neutrons or light ions up to A = 4 and cross sections for production of residual nuclei are analyzed. Neutron yields from deuteron bombardment on thick targets are also analyzed by the Monte Carlo transport simulation based on the deuteron nuclear data provided with DEURACS. Through comparison with experimental and other calculated data, validation of the present modeling in DEURACS is discussed.
