A method combining the intranuclear cascade evaporation model, the binary collision approximation model and the method of molecular dynamics is proposed for the calculation of displacement cross sections for structural materials irradiated with intermediate and high energy particles. Calculated displacement cross sections are compared with experimental data for copper irradiated with 1.1 and 1.94 GeV protons. Calculations up to the proton energy 0.1 TeV are discussed.
