Fission yields determined for fission of 238U with monoenergetic neutrons have been used to calculate the fission yields expected in 238U when exposed to a Watt neutron spectrum for 235U and in the center of the Experimental Breeder Reactor II core. The calculated results are compared with the experimental results for several reactors and with the fast fission yields recommended by two compilers.
