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 coecients were determined for each carbonized steels at dierent gamma
