The total kinetic energy (TKE) release in the fast neutron-induced fission of various actinide nuclei was measured for neutron energies for En =2.6-100 MeV at the Weapons Neutron Research facility of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The data are compared to the GEF model of the fission process. The variances of the TKE distributions appear to decrease with increasing Z and A of the fissioning systems.
