MCNPX and GEANT4 simulation of γ -ray polymeric shields
In this work, the shielding ability of a polymeric compound with gadolinium for gamma radiation has been investigated. The conceptual calculation of radiation attenuation and energy absorption as a function of different Gd percentages and the calculation of total compound density are performed using MCNP and GEANT4. It is found that, 2 mm of the compound can reduce up to 5% and 50% of 1 MeV and 50 keV $\gamma$-rays respectively. Both Monte Carlo tools are in a good agreement.
