Dear Dr. Grof,
     Search the internet for answers.  You clearly  heard about this 
shielding method somewhere ---
contact the person(s) doing the work directly.
     Most places I shield are indoors and perhaps  climate controlled.  
Concrete probably won't
do well in extreme weather or in water.  You can search  out  concrete 
properties directly on the
internet.  As for lead, steel, iron etc., consider each material  
    If you tell me what the accelerator is, and its  operating energies, I 
can pretty much tell
you what kind of shielding is needed.  Are you placing this shielding  in 
the Arctic or
   Take Care,    Regards,    Joseph  R. (Joe) Preisig, PhD

Dear  Joseph,
my problem is not the shielding calculation but how this  method work in
radiation field. how it react with  extreme weather,  how water interact
with it and so on, that only experts that have some  experience with this
method can know.
take care,
