In 2004 the ATLAS collaboration carried out a beam test in which a full slice of the
ATLAS barrel detector was exposed to beams of electrons and pions in the energy range
from 1 to 350 GeV. The calorimeter was composed of a liquid argon lead calorimeter in
the electromagnetic part and a scientillator tile calorimeter in the hadronic part.
The mean response, the resolution and the lateral and longitudinal shower topologies
to hadrons in the energy range from 1 to 180 GeV have been measured and are compared
to Monte Carlo simulations. The ability of the various physics lists in the most
recent version of Geant4 simulation framework is discussed.
