Abstract Development of the superconducting RF crab cavities is one of the major activities under the high luminosity LHC upgrade project that aims to increase the machine discovery potential. The crab cavities will be used for maximizing and leveling the LHC luminosity hence having tight tolerances for the operating voltage and phase. RF field stability in its turn is sensitive to Lorentz force and external loads, so an accurate modelling of these effects is very important. Using the massively parallel ACE3P simulation suite developed at SLAC, we perform a corresponding multiphysics analysis of the electro-mechanical interactions for the RFD crab cavity design in order to ensure the operational reliability of the LHC crabbing system.
