This work aims to introduce an useful computational model, based in Monte Carlo simulation, which can be used in practical application, and this paper presents values determined using a Monte Carlo algorithm for linear attenuation coefficient of lead zinc borate glasses with different percentages of PbO. The simulation results have been verified with predictions from the XCOM program in the studied energy region from 1 keV to 2000 keV and experimental results. Thus, this verification indicated that this research method can be followed to determine the interaction and attenuation of gamma rays with the several energies in different materials. Also, the values of mean free path and the half-value layer were calculated using the values of the linear attenuation coefficient. The dependence of these radiation shielding parameters on the energy of impinging gamma ray and the ratio of substances changes has been examined.
