The Silicon TRD (SiTRD) is a transition radiation detector consisting of multiple modules, each composed by a radiator followed by a silicon strip detector (SSD), inserted inside a magnetic field region. A full Monte-Carlo simulation of the SiTRD has been developed in order to study the performance of the detector for particle identification and momentum measurement. The simulation code, that describes the TR production and the processes of charges deposition and generation of electric signals inside the SSDs, has been tailored using the data taken with a 3-5 GeV/c momentum electron-pion beam. The pion rejection power and the momentum resolution have been studied as a function of the detector parameters. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
