Research Institution
Researchers at SLAC ACD have developed a new generation of high-order finite element procedures for electromagnetic analyses that can effectively simulation new accelerator designs. These same analysis procedures are well suited for electromagnetic applications ranging from threat detection, to antenna de- sign, to wireless device design, to the treatment of cancer. Cost effective massively parallel computers, coupled with advanced computational tools, such as those that can be provided by combination of ACE3P and Simmetrix tools, can make virtual prototyping for electromagnetic applications a reality. The objectives of the proposed SBIR are to: Provide the unstructured mesh generation and adaptation tools required to create and control curved meshes of 1 billions of element running on massively parallel computers. Combine these mesh generation and adaptation tools with the SLAC parallel finite element analysis tools and, to be developed, mesh correction indicators to construct automated adaptive electromagnetic simulations that operate effectively on massively parallel computers. Develop an interactive user environment to support accelerator designers in the definition and execution of accelerator simulations. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: A summary of the general benefits expected as a result of this project, and continued development, include: Providing the developers of accelerators with a set of easy to use tools capable of providing reliable simulation results. Provide a set of electromagnetic simulation tools that operate on large scale parallel computers including moving toward the next generations of computers pushing to exascale. Speeding the development of new simulation tools within the DOE and other research organizations. Provide industry with the means to apply new simulation technologies in the design and production of new products for a broad range of industries from aerospace to consumer products.
