Title Combined Electromagnetic-Thermal-Structural Simulation of the Four-Metre Radio Frequency Quadrupole to be Installed on the Front End Test Stand
Abstract The front end test stand (FETS) being constructed at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is entering the next stage of commissioning, with the three-solenoid magnetic low energy beam transport (LEBT) now installed and undergoing commissioning. The next major component to be manufactured is the 3 MeV, 324 MHz, four metre radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ). The mechanical design is almost complete so a comprehensive finite element model of the entire RFQ has been made in ANSYS to ensure the electromagnetic, thermal and structural properties are sound. An analysis of the cooling strategy and expected resonant frequency shift due to thermal expansion are presented.
