Calorimeters based on silicon core fibres embedded into an absorber have been simulated by combining the GEANT 3.16 package and a proprietary routine describing Cherenkov photon production in optical fibres. The good agreement between simulation results and experimental data allows to study, with a high degree of confidence, the design of a prototype hadronic detector and of different calorimeter configurations to cover the very forward regions of an LHC experiment. © 1995.
