Abstract: One of the outputs of the European Metrology Research Programme project “Ionising radiation metrology for the metallurgical industry” (MetroMetal) was a recommendation on a novel radionuclide specific detector system optimized for the measurement of radioactivity in metallurgical samples. The detection efficiency of the recommended system for the standards of cast steel, slag and fume dust developed within the project was characterized by Monte Carlo (MC) simulations performed using different MC codes. Capabilities of MC codes were also tested for simulation of true coincidence summing (TCS) effects for several radionuclides of interest in the metallurgical industry. The TCS correction factors reached up to 32 % showing that the TCS effects are of high importance in close measurement geometries met in routine analyses of metallurgical samples.
