In this study, neutron-emission spectra produced by (n,xn) reactions up to 26 MeV for some deformed target nuclei as (165)Ho, (181)Ta, (184)W, (232)Th and (238)U have been investigated. Also, the mean free path parameter's effect for (n,xn) neutron-emission spectra has been examined. In the calculations, pre-equilibrium neutron-emission spectra have been calculated by using new evaluated hybrid model and geometry dependent hybrid model, full exciton model and cascade exciton model. The reaction equilibrium component has been calculated by Weisskopf-Ewing model. The obtained results have been discussed and compared with the available experimental data and found agreement with each other.
