Computational Electrodynamics Department
CED provides code development, modeling and simulation, computational science research, and high-performance computing for accelerator applications. This includes high-fidelity modeling and simulations tools that can perform rapid and accurate calculations using massively parallel computers to serve the challenging computational needs in RF components and sources design for accelerators.
SLAC’s parallel multi-physics simulation suite ACE3P employs 3D finite element methods on curved conformal unstructured meshes with high-order field representation for integrated electromagnetic, thermal and mechanical modeling. Executing on state-of-the-art massively parallel computers, ACE3P allows large-scale, high-fidelity simulations of realistic structures with unprecedented accuracy.
