In this study, 1010, 1040, 1050 and 1090 carbonized steels were investigated against gamma radioisotope sources on their gamma attenuation properties. Co-60, Cs-137 and Ir-192 gamma radioisotopes which are commonly used in industrial applications were used in the experiments. Half-value layers were carried out for studied carbonized steels against all studied gamma radioisotopes. In addition, the linear and mass attenuation coefficients were determined for each carbonized steels at different gamma radioisotope sources. The theoretical mass attenuation coefficients were calculated from XCOM computer code for all samples at specific energies of Co-60, Cs-137 and Ir-192 gamma sources. The theoretical and experimental results were compared with each other.
