Oxygen is one of the elements which interacts with emitted neutrons after fission reactions. Oxygen exists abundantly both in nuclear fuel (UO2) and moderators (H2O). Nuclear reactions of oxygen with neutrons are important in terms of stability of nuclear fuel and neutron economy. In this study, equilibrium and pre-equilibrium models have been used to calculate (n,p), (n,d), (n,2n) and (n,α) nuclear reaction cross-sections of 16O. In these calculations, neutron incident energy has been taken up to 40 MeV. Hybrid and Standard Weisskopf-Ewing Models in ALICE-2011 program, Weisskopf-Ewing and Full Exciton Models in PCROSS program, and Cascade Exciton Model in CEM03.01 program have been utilized. The calculated results have been compared with experimental and theroretical cross-section data which are obtained from libraries of EXFOR and ENDF/B VII.1.
