Radiation shielding effects of ferrochromium slag loading hardened epoxy resin samples were investigated. Five different samples including different percentages of epoxy resin and ferrochromium slag were produced. X-ray, gamma ray, and neutron particle transmission experiments were performed for epoxy-ferrochromium slag composites. Also, FLUKA Monte Carlo simulations were made to obtain absorbed doses. As a result, radiation shielding performance increases with increasing ferrochromium slag additive in epoxy.
