The problem of shielding against high-energy neutrons has always attracted a great deal of attention. Neutron shielding requires slowing down energetic neutrons and absorbing with a shield material. Concrete is one of the best known materials for neutron shielding and ferro-boron is described as an alternative shielding material in this study. FLUKA Monte Carlo simulation code was used for the application of shielding calculation. When the simulation results are compared, it is clear that ferro-boron is more effective in neutron shielding than the concrete.
