The r-process abundances are evaluated with the use of three different β-decay models, i.e., the second version of the Gross Theory, the semi-Gross Theory and a QRPA approach. The necessary Qβ-values, as well as the neutron separation energies, are obtained from the TUYY, ETFSI and FRDM mass predictions. A comparison is made among the β-decay half-lives predicted by these β-decay models for the nuclei on a typical r-process path, as well as among the resulting r-process abundances.
