  The GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt is operating the heavy-ion synchrotron SIS18 for fundamental research. Within the ring two ferrite-loaded cavity resonators are installed. During the acceleration phase their resonance frequency has to be adjusted to the revolution frequency of the heavy-ions to reflect their increasing velocity. Within the resonator structures dedicated biased ferrite rings are installed. In the whole setup a properly chosen bias current is used to modify the differential permeability of the ferrite material which consequently enables to adjust the eigenfrequency of the resonator system. The goal of the current study is to numerically determine the lowest eigensolutions of accelerating ferrite-loaded cavities based on the Finite Integration Technique. Since the underlying eigenmodes depend on the differential permeability, the static magnetic field generated by the bias current has to be computed in a first step. The eigenmodes can then be determined with the help of a dedicated Jacobi-Davidson eigensolver. Particular emphasis is put on the implementation to enable high performance computations based on distributed memory machines.
