Keep in mind that radiation length is an inherent property of the material. What you are attempting to do is create a material with a specific aggregate set of cross-sections. Is this correct?

If you wish to do this, you can find an approximate analytical form for the radiation length for homogeneous materials (i.e. solid Copper) here: http://cdsweb.cern.ch/record/1279627/files/PH-EP-Tech-Note-2010-013.pdf

Based on this, you would simply wihs to calculate the X_0 parameter, for your composition of copper (natural abundances?), and then scale its density accordingly.
