During the last five years, development of Geant4 hadronic physics models has been driven largely by the anticipated turn-on of the LHC detectors and the subsequent comparison of new data with the simulated detector responses.

Work has concentrated on three main areas: hadronic model improvement for high energy string models, intranuclear cascade models, precompound and de-excitation models, and elastic scattering which are currently used in the simulation of LHC experiments. These development are tested against a large collection of thin target data and dedicated test beam experiments using calorimeter prototypes. Salient improvements in physics and computing performance of these models will be discussed.
