Integrated Simulation Tools for Collimation Cleaning in HL-LHC

CERN Collimation Team, Stephen Gibson, Laurence Nevay

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The Large Hadron Collider is designed to accommodate an unprecedented stored beam energy of 362~MJ in the nominal configuration and about the double in the high-luminosity upgrade HL-LHC that is presently under study. This requires an efficient collimation system to protect the superconducting magnets from quenches. During the design, it is therefore very important to accurately predict the expected beam loss distributions and cleaning efficiency. For this purpose, there are several ongoing efforts in improving the existing simulation tools or developing new ones. This paper gives a brief overview and status of the different available codes.
