Exploring the QCD phase diagram: Approaching the phase transition from the hadronic side

Colliding heavy ions at ultra-relativistic energies offers access to strongly-interacting matter under extreme conditions. In this talk, I will present the state-of-the-art for the dynamical description of heavy-ion reactions at lower beam energies and introduce the hadronic transport approach SMASH (Simulating Many Accelerated Strongly-interacting Hadrons). A detailed theoretical description of the whole dynamics is required to connect fundamental QCD input to experimental observables. Beyond some recent results, I will focus on the transport coefficients of hadronic matter at finite temperatures and densities calculated within the SMASH hadronic transport approach.
