Shell-correction energies of super-heavy nuclei are approximated by using Q$$_{alpha}$$ values of measured decay chains. Five decay chains were analyzed, which start at the isotopes $$^{285}$$Fl, $$^{294}$$118, $$^{291}$$Lv, $$^{292}$$Lv and $$^{293}$$Lv. The data are compared with predictions of macroscopic-microscopic models. Fission barriers are estimated that can be used to eliminate uncertainties in partial fission half-lives and in calculations of evaporation-residue cross-sections. In that calculations, fission probability of the compound nucleus is a major factor contributing to the total cross-section. The data also provide constraints on the cross-sections of capture and quasi-fission in the entrance channel of the fusion reaction. Arguments are presented that fusion reactions for synthesis of isotopes of elements 118 and 120 may have higher cross-sections than assumed so far.
