NAME

tke - Returns the total kinetic energy release in fission (Viola systematics)

SYNOPSIS

#include <nuclib.h>

double tke(int Z , int A);

double tke_a(int z1 , int a1 , int z2 , int a2);

Link with -lnuclib.

DESCRIPTION

The tke() function returns the total kinetic energy release in fission (Viola systematics) in MeV.

Z A

Atomic and mass number of fissioning nucleus.

The tke_a() function returns the total kinetic energy release in asymmetric fission.

z1 a1

Atomic and mass number of first fission fragment

z2 a2

Atomic and mass number of second fission fragment

such that z1+z2 equals the atomic number of the fissioning nucleus, and a1+a2 equals the mass number.

RETURN VALUE

The functions tke() and tke1() return the value described in units of MeV.

REFERENCE

The systematics of total kinetic energy release in fission, AKA "Viola systematics", was published by V.E. Viola, K. Kwiatkowski, M. Walker in Phys. Rev. C 31, 1550 (1985).
