For the adequate shielding of the radiological equipment using X and gamma rays, special materials with high attenuation properties are needed. This objective may be achieved by the use of concrete. Concrete engineers and technologists must take the role of aggregates more seriously, since there are increasing demands of modern concrete mixtures in terms of technological properties and greater economy. Heavyweight concrete contains aggregates that are natural or synthetic. In this study, metal industry waste products such as iron filings and rebar pieces were used to produce heavy concrete. Physical, mechanical and radiation shielding properties of the obtained concrete with barite, aggregates and artificial aggregates were studied. According to test results, the concrete produced with artificial aggregates can provide the desired physical properties. Radiation shielding coefficient was found to be proportional to the density of concrete.
