The mass attenuation coefficients of seven different types of normal and heavy concretes like ordinary, hematite-serpentine, ilmenite-limonite, basalt-magnetite, ilmenite, steel-scrap and steel-magnetite concretes has been simulated using FLUKA Monte Carlo code at high energies 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 MeV. The mass attenuation coefficients and linear attenuation coefficient of the concretes were found dependent upon the chemical composition, density and gamma ray energy. FLUKA Monte Carlo code results were found in good agreement with experimental and theoretical XCOM data. Our investigations for high energy gamma-ray interaction validate the FLUKA Monte Carlo code for use where experimental gamma-ray interaction results are not available.
Key words: gamma / mass attenuation coefficients / FLUKA / XCOM
