Joe and All,

You mention below that MCNP is available from RSICC (Oak Ridge) for a
handling charge.

My recent experience in requesting the program VARSKIN from RSICC indicates
that they charge an $800 handling fee. That's a lot of "handling"! And then
they insist you sign an airtight contract not to redistribute it.  

Best regards,

     Hey all,

     MCNP (Monte Carlo Neutral Particle Program) does gamma shielding
problems.  It is available from the Radiation Shielding Information Center
RSICC) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (USA).  See their website for
available computer codes, etc.  Usually MCNP etc. are available for a
handling charge.  MCNP does neutron, gamma, etc. calculations. Once one
learns how to set up problem geometries, it is fairly easy to use.
