Abstract The LHC BRAN luminosity detector monitors the high luminosity interaction regions (Atlas and CMS). This chamber, which is an Argon gas ionization detector measures the forward neutral particles from collisions the interaction region. To predict and improve the understanding of the detector¿s performance, we produced a detailed model of the detector and its surroundings in FLUKA. In this paper, we present the model and results of our simulations including the detector¿s estimated response to interactions for beam energies of 3.5, 5.0, and 7.0 TeV.
