In this study, we investigated linear attenuation coefficient (μ ), half value layer, tenth value layer at 243, 344, 866, 1088, 1112, 1528 keV. Mechanical properties of cements containing nanosized powders (nano-SiO2, nano-Fe2O3, nano-Al2O3) are obtained. According to compressive strength results nano-SiO2 added cementitious material gave the highest strength. Moreover, all the nanopowders added samples showed higher compressive strength with respect to reference sample. The experimental linear mass attenuation coefficients μ, half value layer, tenth value layer for cementitious material were compared with theoretical values obtained using XCOM. The experimental results were found to be in good agreement with the theoretical values.
