In this study, neutron-emission spectra produced by (n, xn) reactions for some structural fusion materials as Al-27, V-51, Cr-52, Mn-55, and Fe-56 have been investigated by a neutron beam up to 16 MeV. Multiple preequilibrium mean-free-path constant from internal transition and the preequilibrium and equilibrium level-density parameters have been investigated for some (n, xn) neutron-emission spectra calculated in this study. Preequilibrium neutron-emission spectra were calculated by using new-evaluated hybrid model and geometry-dependent hybrid model, full-exciton model, and cascade-exciton model. The reaction equilibrium component was calculated by Weisskopf-Ewing model. The obtained results have been discussed and compared with the available experimental data and found agreement with each other.
