Induced fission of U236 is calculated in the time-dependent mean-field approximation assuming axial and reflection symmetry and omitting the spin-orbit interaction. Constrained static solutions are used to generate the appropriate initial condition and are compared in detail with results of macroscopic-microscopic calculations. Although dynamic mean-field results are strongly dependent upon an effective pairing gap, predicted observables are consistent with experiment for plausible values of the gap. Detailed comparisons with macroscopic models indicate that both a modified one-body dissipation and two-body viscosity yield observables similar to those of the mean-field theory, even though these physical dissipation mechanisms are fundamentally different.
