  The International Fusion Material Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) which is under design will be a high flux source of fast neutrons for the development of new materials needed for future fusion reactors. IFMIF will deliver 250 mA of 40 MeV deuterons. The duty cycle is 100% and the beam power on the lithium target is 10 MW. The beam will be accelerated by two 175 MHz linacs in parallel operation. Beside the room temperature Alvarez solution an alternative design using superconducting CH-structures has been proposed. In this paper we present the superconducting approach for IFMIF with the emphasis on the beam dynamics simulations. The simulations have been performed using the LORASR code. A new space charge routing has been added to the code to increase the number of macro particles to more than 1 million. Additionally a new routine allows the simulation of randomly distributed RF and alignment errors. The optimized linac layout including error and loss studies will be presented.

EUROTRANS (EUROpean Research Programme for the TRANSmutation of High Level Nuclear Waste in an Accelerator Driven System) is calling for an efficient high-current CW front-end accelerator system. A combination of RFQ, normal conducting CH- (Crossbar H-mode) and super-conducting CH-DTL which aims to work at 352MHz and accelerate a 30mA proton beam to 17MeV has been studied as a promising candidate. The preliminary conceptual study results are reported with respect to beam dynamics design.
