Disintegration of an unstable heavy/superheavy nucleus into three fission fragments, by ignoring neutrons and other types of radiations is termed as cold ternary fission. Ternary fission is an appropriate tool to study the behaviour of a nuclear system at the scission point of a fissioning nucleus.

The characteristics of cold ternary fission are studied by using Three Cluster Model (TCM), which is an extension of the Preformed Cluster Model (PCM) and works based on the cluster picture. By one-dimensional potential minimization, the most favourable combinations for each fragmentation channel have been specified, and the effects of closed shell structures are clearly observed in the ternary fission. In addition, Q-values, penetrability through the potential barrier and relative yields have been calculated and compared with other theoretical models.
