Abstract Experimental data on interactions of relativistic p, d, He and C nuclei with carbon and tantalum nuclei are presented. The data come from the 2−m propane bubble chamber with an internal tantalum target. It is found that interaction cross sections for carbon projectile fragments with chargesZ=5,6 are 10% greater than expected. In central C+C collisions and in multinucleon interactions of d, He and C with tantalum a contribution is observed from cumulative interactions irreducible to the superposition of NN-collisions taking into account final state interactions, rescattering effects, etc.
