Abstract : SAM-CE is a Monte Carlo computer code designed to solve the neutron and gamma ray transport equations in complex three-dimensional geometries. In the study, the SAM-CE code was used to analyze the time-dependent transport of neutrons and secondary gamma rays in slabs of concrete. Calculationally determined counting rates and energy leakage spectra, at a detector located behind the concrete slabs, are compared with similar experimental results obtained by Gulf Radiation Technology.
