In the present study, to test the validation of nuclear reaction model codes, the neutron yield from targets 27Al, NatTi and 56Fe when bombarded by 12C is calculated with EMPIRE 3.2 and PACE 4 nuclear reaction model codes, and compared with the available experimental data at beam energy of ≈ 10 MeV/A for different angles. More over in this work the contribution of pre-equilibrium emission is also discussed in detail. This excess amount of high energy neutrons is expected to induce secondary reactions in core and structural materials of reactor.
