The goal of this work is to improve the simulation tool’s modelling of hadronic showers and create the validation tools for fine-grained calorimeters. These improvements and tools will be implemented in the Geant4 toolkit and made available to the ILC community. The use of detailed shower simulation is well established in the life-cycle of complex HEP detectors, with significant roles in the design and optimization, in calibration and in interpretation of results. The validation of the detailed simulation is a challenge, requiring systematic work of comparison with the results of established experiments and facilities and with test beam results of prototype detectors in order to assure the reliability and systematic errors of the simulation.
