Abstract

A model describing the basic processes taking place in Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) operated in avalanche mode is introduced. The model reproduces the available experimental data, and explains well most results, obtained in many operating conditions and with many kinds of chambers (single, double and multi-gaps). The model can be used to choose among different RPC types, depending on the required performance.
