  Results are presented from end-to-end simulation of a 100 MeV strong focusing cyclotron (SFC). The develop-ment of the high-current SFC is motivated by applica-tions for production of medical isotopes and for a proton driver for subcritical fission. It uses a novel superconducting cavity to provide suffi-cient energy gain to fully separate all turns. An arc-contour F-D doublet, trim dipole winding, and sextupole are located along each turn within the aperture of each sector dipole to control the betatron and synchrotron motion and to stabilize non-linear dynamics with high-current operation. The phase space evolution of a proton bunch in the SFC was simulated using both the code OPAL and an ad hoc Runge-Kutta tracker. Iterative optimization of the dipole, quadrupole, and sextupole fields was used to provide precise isochronicity, favorable betatron phase advance, and cancellation of dispersion in each cell.
