Abstract

When electron beam is generated in linear accelerator (LINAC) huge amount of heat is dissipated, which causes distortions and ultimately frequency detuning. Numerical model of cooling system of 10 MeV LINAC is developed in ANSYS Fluent and temperature distribution developed is exported to static structural package. Maximum temperature gradient at equator is 4.4 K while maximum transverse deformation is 10.3 microns. So corresponding frequency shift of LINAC structure is equal to -372.70kHz.
