Abstract : Secondary gamma ray transmission data are presented for monoenergetic secondary gamma ray sources in concrete slabs of various thicknesses. The data presented have been computed using the Monte Carlo method. These secondary gamma ray transmission data along with an appropriate weighting scheme allow one to determine the secondary gamma ray transmission information for any depth distribution of secondary gamma rays in plane concrete slabs.
