Physical and chemical properties of concrete sample was obtained using various methods such as density analysis, elemental analysis and WD-XRF analysis to get accurate characteristics of concrete collected in our construction site in Korea. Using these results, in this study, we perform the simulation to compare the dose evaluation results between NBS concrete of ANSI/ANS 6.4.3 and characteristics of concrete samples using MCNPX. As a result, simulation results of collected concrete samples in our facility were underestimated up to 54.01%. Through these results, we verify the necessity of accurate properties of materials.
