Abstract
The KASCADE-Grande observatory was a ground-based air shower array
devoted to the study of the energy and composition of cosmic rays with energies
from $1$ PeV to $1$ EeV. The experiment consisted of different detector systems
which allowed the simultaneous measurement of distinct components of the air
showers (EAS), such as the muon content. In this contribution, we study the total
muon number and the lateral density distribution of muons in EAS detected
by KASCADE-Grande. The data are analyzed as a function of the zenith angle and
the total number of charged particles. The attenuation length of the muon content
of EAS is also measured. The results are compared with the predictions of the SIBYLL
$2.3$ hadronic interaction model.
