This paper deals with the validation of the multiple scattering corrections developed in the CONRAD code for the capture yield calculations in the Resolved Resonance energy Range (RRR). In order to calculate the capture yields, analytic and stochastic calculation schemes implemented in CONRAD are described and compared with the analysis code SAMMY/SAMSMC. The results are in excellent agreement for a variety of samples. We concentrate the discussion here on 238U, 197Au and 55Mn.
