A method for predicting (Z,A,En) is developed and tested against available experimental data for isotopes ranging from 229Th to 249Cf The only input values required are the charge and mass numbers (Z and A) and the binding energy of the last neutron in the (A + 1) nucleus. For incident neutron energies greater than the threshold of multiple-chance fission, the method is extended by accounting for each fission process separately. This method is an extension of work reported by the author in 1963 and 1971.
