Hadronic Shower Validation Experience for the ATLAS End‐Cap Calorimeter
- Conference date: 6-8 September 2006
- Location: Batavia, Illinois (USA)
Validation of GEANT4 hadronic physics models is carried out by comparing experimental data from beam tests of modules of the ATLAS end‐cap calorimeters with GEANT4 based simulations. Two physics lists (LHEP and QGSP) for the simulation of hadronic showers are evaluated. Calorimeter performance parameters like the energy resolution and response for charged pions and shapes of showers are studied. Comparison with GEANT3 predictions is done as well.
