Boron carbide is a material which has wide application areas in industry including nuclear technology. Titanium diboride reinforced boron carbide-silicon carbide composites were studied for searching of the behaviour against the gamma ray. It has been adopted that depending on their properties such improved materials can be used in nuclear technology. For the investigation of the gamma radiation behaviour of these materials, Cs-137 radioisotope was used as gamma source in the experiments which have a single gamma-peak at 0.662 MeV. Gamma transmission technique was used for the measurements. Different reinforcing ratios, titanium diboride reinforced boron carbide-silicon carbide composites were evaluated in relation to gamma transmission and the results of the experiments were interpreted and compared with each other. It could be understood that the increasing ratio of titanium diboride in boron carbide-silicon carbide composites causes higher hardness, strength and linear attenuation coefficient values but decrease the mass attenuation coefficient.
