A hybrid experiment has been started by ASγ collaboration at Tibet, China, since May 2009, that consists of a burst-detector-grid (YAC, Yangbajing Air shower Core array) and the Tibet air-shower array (Tibet-III). The first step of YAC, called YAC-I, contains 16 detector units and observes high energy electromagnetic particles in air-shower cores within several meters from the shower axis, and Tibet-III array measures the total energy and the arrival direction of air showers. YAC-I is used to check hadronic interaction models currently used for air-shower simulations such as QGSJET, SIBYLL , EPOS etc. through the multi-parameter measurement in air-shower cores. In this paper, we used a data set collected from May 1st 2009 through February 23rd 2010 by the YAC-I. The effective live time used for the present analysis is 169.65 days. The preliminary results of the interaction model checking at *10 TeV energy region is reported in this paper.
