Abstract: The LPCTrap setup is a sensitive tool to measure the β − ν angular correlation
coefficient, aβν, which can yield the mixing ratio ρ of a β decay transition. The latter
enables the extraction of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) matrix element Vud. In
such a measurement, the most relevant observable is the energy distribution of the recoiling
daughter nuclei following the nuclear β decay, which is obtained using a time-of-flight
technique. In order to maximize the precision, one can reduce the systematic errors through
a thorough simulation of the whole set-up, especially with a correct model of the trapped ion
cloud. This paper presents such a simulation package and focuses on the ion cloud features;
particular attention is therefore paid to realistic descriptions of trapping field dynamics,
buffer gas cooling and the N-body space charge effects.
