Multiple injections into the 50 GeV proton synchrotron, proposed by the Institute of Nuclear Study of Japan, from a 3 GeV booster using barrier buckets are simulated. For four successive injections of 4 bunches each time, having a half momentum spread of 0.5%, the final coasting beam in the synchrotron has a momentum spread of roughly ±1.0% in the core, with a tail extending up to ±2.5%. The choice of debunching time, barrier velocity, barrier voltage, and barrier width is analyzed. Some beam
