In this study, we investigated neutron-emission spectra induced by (n,xn) nuclear reactions for the Be-9 structural fusion material at 14.2 MeV neutron energy. We calculated double-differential cross sections () with ALICE-2011 codeor the angles of 30A degrees, 60A degrees, 90A degrees, 120A degrees, and 150A degrees. Hybrid Monte Carlo simulation model have been used to calculate the double differential emission spectra for these different angles. The obtained results were compared with the measured data taken from EXFOR library. The results show an acceptable agreement.
