Description

A review of tools for electromagnetic field simulations used at CERN will be given. A number of examples of its usage will be presented covering several areas of accelerator component design and optimization both RF and non-RF equipment: accelerating cavities, collimation devices, etc. Furthermore, brief review of CLIC main linac RF frequency and accelerating gradient optimization will be given as an example of incorporating electromagnetic field simulation into a global optimization process including both constraints coming from the beam dynamics simulations and the empirical RF constraints related to the high gradient linac operation.
