Melting of N = 20 shell and development of N = 16 and 32 shells for neutronrich nuclei have been studied extensively by including tensor interaction in Skyrme-Hartree-Fock theory optimized to reproduce the splitting Δ1f shells of 40,48Ca and 56Ni nuclei. Evolution of gap generated by the energy difference of single-particle levels ν2s1/2 and ν1d3/2 has been found to be responsible for shell closure at N = 16. The splitting pattern of spin-orbit partners 2p shell model state in Ca, Ti, Cr, Fe and Ni isotopes indicates the formation of a new shell at N = 32 region. © Indian Academy of Sciences.
