Dissemination and support of ARGUS for accelerator applications. Final report, April 24, 1991--April 14, 1995

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The effort has two broad goals, which have been prioritized by DOE, as follows: to enhance the ARGUS code for use in practical accelerator design simulations; to release ARGUS to the accelerator community through the Los Alamos Accelerator Code Group (LAACG). During the contract period, ARGUS versions 24 and 25 have been released. An upgraded version 25 (ARGUS v.25c) will be released in July, 1995, and will include all of the features that are tested and working at the conclusion of the DOE-funded effort. The effort that consolidated version 24 established a set of core capabilities that all ARGUS modules ... continued below

Description

The effort has two broad goals, which have been prioritized by DOE, as follows: to enhance the ARGUS code for use in practical accelerator design simulations; to release ARGUS to the accelerator community through the Los Alamos Accelerator Code Group (LAACG). During the contract period, ARGUS versions 24 and 25 have been released. An upgraded version 25 (ARGUS v.25c) will be released in July, 1995, and will include all of the features that are tested and working at the conclusion of the DOE-funded effort. The effort that consolidated version 24 established a set of core capabilities that all ARGUS modules could access. Version 25 incorporated several major improvements: (1) a new frequency-domain module was incorporated into ARGUS that can handle degenerate modes, lossy materials, and periodic boundary conditions with sub-phase specification, and that can utilize the ARGUS data handling machinery for multiblock operation; (2) HDF output was implemented to allow ARGUS to send data to visualization tools; (3) a plasma chemistry capability was included in the steady-state PIC module to allow ionization, stripping, electron attachment, charge exchange, and other ion rate processes to occur within the PIC calculation; (4) new structure input options for figures of translation (extrusion) and figures of revolution were implemented. This ARGUS release is supported on all Cray platforms and on the IBM RS6000 Unix workstation platform. Version 25 was released in February 1994. The ARGUS dissemination and support activities have proceeded in parallel with code enhancement. On-line ARGUS support is available at NERSC through ARGUS man pages, and at the SAIC ftp node at mclapo.saic.com, through the SAIC MOSAIC home page, and through ARGUS bulletin boards maintained at SAIC and at NERSC.
