Structure, properties and exploitation features of refractory concrete are dependent on technological parameters of sample production, concrete mixture content and additives, like different piasticizers. Three types of refractory concrete samples have been produced adding different piasticizers to the concrete mixture: 0.1% water free Na2P3O10; 0.1% polycarboxylate ether and composition (0.2: 0.1) of both piasticizers. The behavior of concrete samples in the high energy low dose rate gamma irradiation field has been analyzed and radiation impact on the sample nuclide structure and properties have been investigated. Radiation shielding properties of these materials are compared to those of other concrete types used for the radiation shielding purposes. Source
