Title Comparative Studies Into 3D Beam Loss Simuations
Abstract A detailed understanding and monitoring of potential beam loss mechanisms is crucial for every particle accelerator. The main motivation in low energy facilities, such as the Ultra-low energy Storage Ring (USR) at the future Facility of Low energy Antiproton and Ion Research (FLAIR), comes from the very low number of particles available which in such machine ought to be conserved. In high energy accelerators it is the concern about activation or even physical damage of machine parts which has to be taken into serious account. The CLIC Test Facility (CTF3) at CERN provides an ideal testing ground for studies into novel BLM systems and is well suited for benchmarking the results from numerical simulations in experiments. This contribution summarizes the three-dimensional beam loss pattern as found with the commonly used codes FLUKA and GĂ©ant4. The results from these codes are compared and analyzed in detail and used for the identification of optimum beam loss monitor locations.
