Scintillating crystals are used for calorimetry in several high-energy physics experiments.
For some of them,
performance has to be ensured in difficult operating conditions, like a high radiation
environment, very large particle
fluxes and high collision rates.
Results will be presented from a thorough series of complementary measurements
concerning the effect of charged
hadrons on Lead Tungstate crystals. It will also be shown how these results can be used
to predict the effect on
crystals due to a given flux of particles.
