Beam line simulation
BDSIM - Accelerator Beamline simulation tool
is a Geant4 extension toolkit for beamline simulations. This is used to study beam loss through out a machine and energy loss, which is particularly useful for detector background simulations for example for a laserwire or for predicting energy deposition in the cryogenic dipole magnets of the LHC
Current work is towards developing BDSIM for the High Luminosity LHC Upgrade
, which requires precise knowledge of energy deposition under new ATS beam optics.
Electromagnetic simulations and GdfidL
We have a license to run GdfidL, an electromagnetic simulator code designed for parallel computing, on our 40-node Faraday Cluster
. This tutorial
may be useful to those using GdfidL on the cluster.
