In the framework of the LCG Simulation Physics Validation Project, we present comparison studies between the GEANT4 and FLUKA shower packages and LHC sub-detector test-beam data. Emphasis is given to the response of LHC calorimeters to electrons, photons, muons and pions. Results of "simple-benchmark" studies, where the above simulation packages are compared to data from nuclear facilities, are also shown.
