In the framework of design studies for SPIRAL2, the simulation of the neutron flux generated by 40 MeV deuterons on a thick 12C target was performed and compared to experimental data. The calculation of the dose rate of these neutrons allowed to compare four materials being considered for radioprotection shielding: barites, gypsum, ordinary concrete and heavy concrete. The simulated map of the neutron dose rate in the production building shows a very high dose rate around the neutron source and in the environment of some of the accelerator equipment.
