Abstract : The report is a user's guide for the FSCATT code. FSCATT is a non-Monte Carlo energy deposition and transport code which accounts for photoelectric absorption, fluorescence, and Compton scattering in slab geometry. The code allows multilayer calculations with each layer consisting of a mixture of elements. The option to include test materials and/or calculate the deposition in heterogeneous materials is provided. (Author)
