"Chemically Bonded Phosphate Ceramics (CBPCs) is a composite based material formed in a manner similar to cements. CBPCs have shown to be a good structural material with excellent thermal resistance properties. They have also been shown to have potential as a radiation shield. By incorporating various powders into the ceramic the improvement in its radiation shielding properties are examined. The method for obtaining the linear attenuation coefficients for CBPCs as well as MCNP simulated results for gamma and neutrons are presented"--Abstract, page iv.
