Paper Abstract

The user-friendly programming environment DAPHNE has been developed for the optimization of Gyrotrons. It is embedded into the ASTRID system which is an integrated program development system including the module MiniM to define the geometry of the device, the CASE module to describe the boundary conditions, a MESH module to specify an autoadaptive grid, a solver for elliptic partial differential equations, as well as a powerful graphics system. These ASTRID modules are connected together by means of the data management system MEMCOM. External programs (magnetic field solver, particle pusher, wave/beam simulator, heat deposition) can be added by interfacing them to MEMCOM. The different program modules are executed by means of a specially concepted command language. Domain decomposition techniques are used to specify the geometry, to build locally structured meshes and to represent graphically the results.
