The existing data of neutron-production double-differential cross sections on C, Cu, and Pb targets bombarded with heavy-ions from He to Xe at 230-600 MeV/nucleon were revised by using a new set on neutron-detection efficiency values of an NE213-type liquid organic scintillator calculated with SCINFUL-QMD. The revised data were compared with the experimental data obtained by our new measurements, and the predictions of the Monte-Carlo particle transport codes, PHITS, FLUKA, MCNPX, and Geant4. While the revised and new experimental data showed good agreement, the Monte-Carlo codes failed to reproduce the high-energy peaks in the forward angular region.
