The validation of GEANT4 physics models is done by comparing experimental data from
beam tests of modules of the ATLAS hadronic end-cap calorimeter with GEANT 4 based
simulations. Various physics lists for the simulation of hadronic showers are
evaluated. We present results of studies of the calorimeter performance parameters,
such as energy resolution and shower shapes, as well as
results of investigations of the influence of Birks' law and of cuts on the time of
development of hadronic showers.
