A TRACE 3-D module has been developed for the Particle Beam Optics Laboratory (PBO Lab). TRACE 3-D is a FORTRAN program that calculates envelopes, centroids, and phase space ellipses of a bunched beam, including linear space charge forces. TRACE 3-D can now be executed from PBO Lab on a PC running Windows or Windows NT, along with other computational programs, including TRANSPORT, TURTLE and MARYLIE. The PBO Lab environment provides a single graphic user interface for multiple optics codes. Beamline models are constructed graphically using a palette bar of accelerator element icons. Models can be organized using any hierarchy of sublines and alias components, which are easily created with drag and drop editing of the graphical beamline representation. TRACE 3-D is fully integrated with PBO Lab and a mixed language interface allows I/O data to be interchanged dynamically without writing disk files. Iterative processing with TRACE 3-D, in combination with built in PBO Lab tools, such as the nonlinear optimizer, is significantly enhanced by using the RAM based mixed language data interface. Several electrostatic elements have also been developed for use with the TRACE 3-D module in PBO Lab.
