Simulations of photo-nuclear reactions by using Monte Carlo codes PHITS and FLUKA have been performed to compare to the measured data at the SPring-8 injector with 250MeV and 961MeV electrons. Measurement data of Bismuth-206 productions due to photo-nuclear reactions of 209Bi(γ,3n) 206Bi and high energy neutron reactions of 209Bi(n,4n)206 Bi at the beam dumps have been compared with the simulations. Neutron leakage spectra outside the shield wall are also compared between experiments and simulations.
