Neutron-deuteron elastic scattering cross sections are calculated at different energies using m nucleon-nucleon ( NN) interactions and the Tucson-Melbourne three-nucleon force adjusted to the tr binding energy. Predictions based on NN forces only underestimate nucleon-deuteron data in the mi ima at higher energies starting around 60 MeV. Adding the three-nucleon forces fills up those mi and reduces the discrepancies significantly. [S0031-9007(98)06806-9]
