Abstract A Monte Carlo program to design a transition radiator detector is described. The program provides the possibility to calculate the X-ray yield from radiators of different materials and structures, and analyzes the transition radiation energy release in various gaseous detectors. Title of program: TRD_SIM Catalogue Id: ABDI_v1_0 Nature of problem We have developed an interactive software package suitable to design a transition radiation detector. The transition radiation yield of ultrarelativistic charged particles both from multilayered regular radiators and foam slabs is calculated. The program evaluates the number of photons emitted by the radiator, the number of the photons converted in the following gaseous detector and the relative energy distributions.
