We have so far developed a computational code system dedicated to deuteron-induced reactions in combination with some theoretical models. In our previous works, the code system was successfully applied to systematic analyses of double-differential cross sections (DDXs) of (d,xp) reactions for 12C, 27Al, and 58Ni at incident energies up to 100 MeV. In the present work, we apply the code system to neutron emission from deuteron-induced reactions. Since there is few experimental data of DDXs of (d,xn) reactions, double-differential thick target neutron yields (TTNYs) are calculated and compared with experimental data instead of DDXs. The calculation using the code system reproduces the measured TTNYs for carbon at incident energies up to 50 MeV.
