  After an RF cavity has been designed, a thermal analysis is typically performed to assess the effects of RF heating on the operating frequency and field flatness. A multi-physics approach (coupled electromagnetic, thermal, and mechanical) is normally employed, sometimes combined with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations to incorporate flowing water, which is used for cooling in normal conducting structures. Performing a CFD analysis can add significant time to the design process because of the long and complex simulations and instead, approximations of the heat transfer coefficients and inlet/outlet water temperature rises are made and used directly in the multi-physics analysis. In this work, we first explore the limits of these approximations, identifying when they apply and how accurate they are. We then investigate different pipe geometries and water flow rates to find the thermal limits from RF heating on cavity performance.
