The particle production in hadron-nucleon (h-N), hadron-nucleus (h-A) and nucleus-nucleus (A-A) collisions at high energies are studied in view of the multi-peripheral model. A multi-peripheral T-matrix element is assumed with multi surface parameter that is functionally dependent on the number of particles in the final state and control the kinematical path of the reaction. A Monte Carlo code is designed to simulate events ac-cording to a hypothetical model, the quark structure of the interacting nucleons is consid-ered. The number of possible nucleon collisions inside the target nucleus plays an important role in folding the (h-N) to generate the (h-A) and (A-A) collisions. The predictions of the model give reasonable agreement with the recently examined experimental data.
