Based on the detailed analysis of the reaction cross sections obtained using the finite range Glauber model, a systematic study of strong absorption radii is carried out. A simple phenomenological expression is proposed to calculate reaction cross sections directly using the average nucleon-nucleon cross section for a given target-projectile combination at given energy. Reliability of the model expression is demonstrated through a variety of illustrative examples.
