The radiation shielding calculations were performed for the beam experiment hall of the Proton Engineering Frontier Project (PEFP) in Korea using MCNPX code with nuclear data libraries of the ENDF-B/VII, JEFF3.1, LA150, JENDL-HE, and physics models, Bertini and Isabel built in MCNPX code. The neutron energy spectra from 6 targets (20 MeV/ 1.5 mA-Si, Cu, target, 20 MeV/ 50 uA-Si, 20 MeV/ 4.8 mA-C target, 100 MeV/ 300 uA-Si, W target, 100 MeV/ 10 uA-Si, 100 MeV/ 1.6 mA-C target) were calculated and used as radiation source terms. With these results, the concrete thickness satisfying shielding regulations in Korea was calculated for the target rooms and the building of the Beam Experiment Hall. Bertini, Isabel, JENDL/HE and LA150 nuclear data were applied to the evaluation of the proton induced neutrons. ENDF/B-VII, JEFF3.1, and JENDL/HE nuclear data were applied to the evaluation of the concrete shield.
