The fission barriers of 230-234Pa have been carried out by using the BARRIER code developed by Garcia. The nuclear shape has been parameterized in terms of Cassini ovaloids proposed by Pashkevich. The single- particle energies have been calculated as
function of the deformation parameters of an axially deformed Woods-Saxon potential, as input to the shell correction calculations. To obtain the total nuclear energy, it is also necessary to add a pairing energy in order to take into consideration the short range
nuclear interactions.
