Abstract: It is indicated that the use of pits and ponds is the cheapest method of containing active materials but that many things can make these methods impracticable. Concrete is thought to be the most generally useful material for above-ground shields and high density shields can be made comparably cheaply by using steel punchings, ilmenite sand, iron ore or a combination of these. Lead and cast iron are among the most expensive shielding materials but they can often be justified because of their compactness. Costs are included wherever possible.
