AB - The CST Studio provides convenient tools for self-consistent 3D modeling of accelerators, even large ones. Here we demonstrate this approach for the LANSCE drift-tube linac (DTL) taken as an example. The RF fields in 3D models of full DTL tanks are calculated and tuned with MicroWave Studio (MWS). Beam dynamics in the DTL is modeled with Particle Studio for bunches and bunch trains with realistic initial beam distributions using the MWS-calculated RF fields and quadrupole magnetic fields. The output beam parameters and locations of particle losses are calculated and compared for different beam distributions. Our main emphasis is on the formation of low-energy tails (longitudinal halo) and their interaction with regular bunches. Such effects are usually not taken into account in standard multi-particle phase-space codes.
