Integral neutronic data has been evaluated for incident 14.1-MeV (D,T) fusion source neutrons in infinite medium for the most important materials in fusion technology, namely for lithium, beryllium, lead and uranium. The study concludes the calculation of the integral tritium breeding ratio (TBR). Pu-239 breeding rate, neutron multiplication ratio through (n,x)-and fission-reactions and that of the heat release in those mixtures which are composed when first natural uranium and uranium-238 will be mixed with natural lithium or Li-6 for a volume fraction from 0 to 100% and then the variable uranium-lithium composition will be mixed with Be or Pb for a volume fraction from 0 to 100%.
