We report effects of particle energy on physical properties of Co-doped BaFe$$_{2}$$As$$_{2}$$ in the case of Xe and Au irradiations. The irradiation-induced suppression of $$T$$$$_{rm c}$$ is found to be related with several factors, such as defect structures and the thickness of the crystal. Heavy-ion irradiation induces enhancement of critical current density $$J$$$$_{rm c}$$, and a weak dip in the hysteresis loop. The fish-tail effect is completely suppressed by a modest density of defects. The enhancement of $$J$$$$_{rm c}$$ is closely related to the defect structure. Namely, splayed structure in columnar defects, inevitably introduced at lower energies, results in a strong enhancement of $$J$$$$_{rm c}$$ by forced entanglement of vortices.
