In present investigation, the study of gamma ray Energy absorption buildup factors (EABF) for three oxide glasses, viz. CaO-Al2O3, Na2O-SiO2, and Na2O-Al2O3-SiO2. The computations were done by ANSI/ANS-6.4.3 library and interpolation method using the Geometric Progression fitting formula for the energy range from 0.015 to 15 MeV, up to penetration depths 40 mfp (mean free path). The buildup factors have been studied as functions of penetration depth, incident photon energy and effective atomic number (Zeff) and presented in the forms of graphs.
