The Thin Layer Activation method (TLA) is widely used for wear, corrosion and erosion measurements by using medium energy charged particle accelerators. To accomplish a TLA experiment and calculate the amount of wear by using the nuclear tracing technique it is necessary to know the accurate excitation functions of the nuclear reactions in question as well as the nuclear data (half-life, γ-energies, etc.) of the produced tracer isotopes. In the framework of a systematic study a series of elements which may occur as common construction material have been investigated.
