Preprint ANL/MCS-P1519-0708

Preprint Version: [pdf]

Modern beam dynamics simulations require nontrivial implementations of multiple physics models. We discuss how component framework design in combination with the Common Component Architecture’s component model and implementation eases the process of incorporation of existing state-of-the-art models with newly-developed models. We discuss
current developments in componentized beam dynamics software, emphasizing design issues and
distribution issues.
