    Abstract

    A description is given of a computer program, AEK P-598 MCSUP, which calculates the resonance integral for a single resonance in a square reactor lattice cell, containing a cylindricnl fuel zone surrounded by a moderator zone. The fuel zone contains only one nuclide type, while the moderator may be composed by several nuclide types. Scattering interference and Doppler broadening is included. MCSUP is a Monte Carlo code based on the superposition method devised by Spanier and Gelbard. The code is well-suited for calculations on isolated fuel rods. It is written in FORTRAN IV.
