LHCf is planning to measure very forward particle emission in the LHC p-Pb collisions foreseen at the end of 2012. The measurement is expected to constrain the nuclear effect in the forward particle emission relevant to the CR-Air interaction. Model discrimination power of this measurement is presented together with some detail in technical feasibility.
