The experimental results on DDX (double differential neutron production cross section data), TTY (thick target neutron production yield data), heavy-ion produced neutron transport data, and spallation products production cross section data taken at Heavy Ion Medical Accelerator (HIMAC), National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS), Japan, are presented for heavy ions of He to Xe in the energy range of 100 MeV/nucleon to 800 MeV/nucleon. In addition to the HIMAC results, the following experimental results are presented: 1) neutron yields and shielding data taken recently at heavy ion accelerator of Gesellschaft fuer Schwerionenforschung (GSI), Germany; 2) the neutron production data in the forward direction by 200 to 400 MeV protons measured at cyclotron facility, Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP), Osaka University; 3) some deep penetration shielding experiments using high energy proton accelerators. These experimental results are compared with several Monte Carlo calculations.
