Abstract: We present results of simulations of a muon content in the air showersinduced by very high energy cosmic rays. Muon energy distributions and muondensities at ground level are given. We discuss a prompt muon componentgenerated by decays of charm mesons. The method combines standard Monte Carlogenerators incorporated in the CORSIKA code and phenomenological estimates ofthe charm hadroproduction.
