In order to simulate a Superheated-Superconducting detector which is under construction for Particle Physics purposes, we study a bidimensional lattice of small superconducting spheres placed in an external magnetic field. We propose a model to study the diamagnetic interactions among the spheres and solve it using numerical Monte-Carlo techniques. New phenomena are found and the ensuing results are analyzed. Finally it is proposed a qualitative explanation.
