Özet

In the present work, the gamma and neutron attenuation behaviors of tungsten, tungsten copper, and tungsten boron-carbide coatings on 321 stainless steel substrate were investigated against Cs-137 and Co-60 gamma radioisotopes and Pu-Be neutron source. The experimental results were compared and evaluated with pure 321 stainless steel to obtain gamma and neutron shielding properties of the coating materials. Tungsten, tungsten copper, and tungsten boron-carbide coatings on 321 stainless steel substrate were fabricated by atmospheric plasma spraying technique. Gamma and neutron transmission technique were used in this study to investigate the radiation behaviors of the coated materials. Linear attenuation coefficients of coated samples were carried out for Pu-Be neutron source. Transmittance values for each specimen were calculated at 0.662 MeV and 1.25 MeV gamma energies. The experimental results were evaluated for radiation shielding properties of the coated samples against gamma and neutron source with pure 321 stainless steel.
