We explore the effects of errors in the fabrication of several thousand RDDS (Rounded Damped Detuned Structure ) linacs on the emittance dilution and, when severe errors are present, on BBU (Beam Break Up). Multiple bunches are accelerated within a pulse train. Fabrication errors which give rise to errors in the modal frequencies which are both randomly distributed and systematically shifted from structure-to -structure are considered. Should a systematic shift in the mode frequencies occur repeatably from structure-to-structure then BBU may occur. However, provided the errors in the frequencies are distributed randomly from cell-to-cell and from structure-to-structure then the emittance is actually improved slightly over that of the purely single bunch emittance. Results are presented on the emittance growth and phase space for small errors and for relatively large errors (introduced with a view to relaxing the tolerance requirements).
