Combining the statistical model with nuclear structure data for nuclear decay property study

The statistical Hauser-Feshbach model, often applied to nucleon induced nuclear reactions, is combined with the nuclear structure data to calculate beta-delayed neutron and gamma-ray emissions. The structure data consists of the evaluated decay data in ENSDF when experimental data are available, or the QRPA model calculations to predict the Gamow-Tellar strength. Some results of integral data testing, as well as a possible extension of our modeling to include a fission competition channel will be discussed.
