Abstract:

A program for computer studies of general ion orbits in sector focused cyclotrons is described. The NRDL version of the General Orbit Code has evolved from the original Oak Ridge version of the program, but has been considerably modified for its application to the design of the NRDL 70-inch cyclotron. Several of the improvements to the original version of the code are discussed, including time dependent acceleration with four dee gaps in any harmonic mode. The general features of the code are described, such as tracing of orbits in the backward direction, simultaneous tracking of two orbits, and axial motion. A discussion of the input parameters and instructions for the operation of the program are included. Author
