Particle accelerator systems design at HVE with Opera-3D


Presenter: Guillermo Dominguez, High Voltage Engineering Abstract: Opera-3D has proven to be a valuable design and optimization tool of particle accelerator systems which can presently go up to 6 million volts. We will present recent systems developed at HVE, examples where Opera-3D simulation package has helped improve/optimize the engineering, anticipating the major challenges while shortening [...]


Coupled simulation of 400 MHz elliptical cavity with Soprano and Static Stress Solver of Opera


Presenter: Anastasia Xydou, CERN Abstract: The LHC (RF) cavity is a metallic chamber which contains an oscillating electromagnetic field. The cavity is made of copper and the desired superconducting behavior is achieved by sputter-depositing its inner surface with a film of niobium (Nb) with a thickness of the order of 1 m. Each cavity is enveloped [...]


Join us for the 2018 European User Group Meeting


During June a group of scientists, design engineers and researchers from across Europe will visit Oxford for the OperaFEA European User Group Meeting. But what can they expect from the academic location of this year’s meeting? Oxford’s historical roots can be traced back to when it was originally a settlement in Saxon times. Located at [...]

Andrew Farebrother’s top 5 EUGM tips


As the time approaches for the OperaFEA European User Group Meeting, which takes place in the middle of June in Oxford, Account Manager Andrew Farebrother offers his top 5 tips to get the most out of the meeting.


Chris Riley to speak at 5th IOP Superconductivity Summer School


Engineering Manager Chris Riley will speak at the 5th IOP Superconductivity School from 11-13 July 2018. This three-day summer school on superconductivity will deliver a brief introduction to superconducting materials and applications. The school is aimed primarily at postgraduate students but is also open to undergraduates, academics, engineers, consultants and other practitioners. Topics include: • [...]


Zunum Aero has a bold plan for a low-carbon flying future


Electric cars make up a growing share of the vehicles on our roads, but what about the aircraft in our skies? While it may be slower to gain traction, an electric revolution is set to take place in aviation technology. When can we expect to see a low-carbon flying future? What will the aircraft of [...]


Full speed ahead for electric cars


Electric cars were once an expensive novelty, mocked for slow speeds and limited range. However, a trickle of vehicles coming onto the market has become a steady stream and many countries are now setting dates for a ban on sales of vehicles with internal combustion engines. A fierce global competition is underway to determine the [...]


How to design for x-ray tube


In this blog we will look at the utility of the Opera simulation environment for the simulation of X‑ray tubes. Firstly, we will concentrate on their operation and design parameters, and the requirements that these place on tools used in their design. We’ll follow this with look at the capability of Opera to meet these [...]
