Title Progress on Simulation of Fixed Field Alternating Gradient Accelerators
Abstract Fixed Field Alternating Gradient accelerators have been realised in recent decades thanks partly to computational power, enabling detailed design and simulation prior to construction. We review the specific challenges of these machines and the range of different codes used to model them including ZGOUBI, OPAL and a number of in-house codes from different institutes. The current status of benchmarking between codes is presented and compared to the results of recent characterisation experiments with a 150 MeV FFAG at KURRI in Japan. Finally, we outline plans toward ever more realistic simulations including space charge, material interactions and more detailed models of various components.
