Beam-beam effects impose restrictions on beam and beam optical parameters as they may degrade the luminosity and the emittance or cause coherent instabilities and particle loss. In the planned High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC), beam-beam effects will significantly affect the beams because of unprecedented beam parameters and new features like crab cavities or elliptical beam cross sections at the interaction points. Noise from various sources can further worsen the situation. Therefore investigations are required to identify limitations of possible HL-LHC layouts. The impact of beam-beam effects on the beam dynamics is investigated by virtue of particle tracking simulations. Using the code BeamBeam3D and the strong-strong collision model, simulations including perturbations by noise and LHC's feedback system, an important means to mitigate transverse emittance growth due to coherent beam excitation, were carried out. The impact of numerical noise on the emittance in simulations and the state of the feedback modeling are presented.
