Description

Numerical modeling and simulation provide a path for the advancement of accelerator science and technology, as it is essential for both the design process and optimal operation of accelerators and accelerator components. In order to achieve accurate results, simulations must include both independent particle and collective effects as well as an accurate description of the electromagnetic and mechanical properties of the accelerator components. Such simulations are computationally-intensive and thus require high performance computing (HPC) capable numerical tools. Fermilab supports a broad and productive program in computational simulation and modeling for existing and future accelerators and accelerator technologies through the DOE SciDAC Community Petascale Project for Accelerator Science and Simulation (COMPASS). Through its leadership and participation in ComPASS, Fermilab has developed or has expertise in utilizing HPC codes capable of modeling every aspect of an accelerator system (dynamics, electromagnetic and mechanical properties) in an integrated environment. Such capabilities, coupled to Fermilab's advanced infrastructure in Superconducting RD technology and diverse accelerator facilities, could provide a complete environment for the development of new technologies and applications for science, medicine, or industrial applications. In addition, Fermilab has expertise in utilization of HPC systems and development in new computing environments, such as GPU enhanced architectures, thus covering all aspects of the design, building, and testing cycle of R&D.
