The Centre for Accelerator Science and Technology (PSTA) will conduct an experiment for proton beam energy measurement of its cyclotron facility (DECY-13) using copper foil activation technique. This method generates neutron and gamma radiation. Thus, radiation shielding is required for safety provision. The previous work had investigated the radiation shielding for DECY-13 using analytical methods. However, it needs another method to verifiy its result. In this work, we had conducted particle transport simulation using the Particle and Heavy Ion Transport code System (PHITS) to validate the analytical methods. Based on simulation, to fulfil the safety criteria of maximum dose rate of 20 µSv/h at the distance of 300 cm, it needs 8 blocks of K500 concrete shielding with total thickness of 120 cm resulted in the dose rate of 19.1 µSv/h. This value is 99% matched the analytical methods (based on the previous investigation) of 121.19 cm. Thus, PHITS had successfully validated the analytical methods for investigating the radiation shielding of DECY-13 cyclotron.
