Abstract: Developing beam dynamics simulation tools using the moment method has advantages in terms of precision and efficiency when interests lie in average or rms dimensions of the beam, projected emittances or total energy. The moment method implemented in the V-Code solves the Vlasov equation by time integration, from an initial particle distribution represented by a discrete set of characteristic moments, accounting for all acting internal and external forces along the particle's path. The moment method delivers highly accurate beam dynamics results within a very small CPU time. This article proposes, illustrates and validates a new beam line element for a radiofrequency quadrupole (RFQ) for insertion in the V-Code. The focus will be on the RFQ cell structure, the electric field distribution and the insertion of the field distribution in the moment code.
