The excitation functions of proton induced reactions on Ti, Ni and Cu were studied using activation method on stacks made of thin metallic foil targets with natural isotopic composition. Since titanium, nickel and copper are ideal target material with respect to their availability, physical, mechanical and chemical properties the use of the natTi(p,x)48V, natNi(p,x)57Ni, natCu(p,x)62Zn, natCu(p,x)63Zn and natCu(p,x)65Zn processes are suitable for monitoring the intensity and/or energy of charged particle beams. These processes are recommended under 40 MeV bombarding proton energy as monitor reaction. The new data sets of these five processes were cross-checked with each other to provide reliable consistent numerical cross-sections. Results were compared to the recommended cross-section values reported recently by the International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA TECDOC-1211, 2001].
