    The Cor­nell-BNL Elec­tron Test Ac­cel­er­a­tor CBETA is based on a 36 MeV su­per­con­duct­ing linac and on a sin­gle 4-pass up/4-pass down lin­ear FFAG re­turn loop, for beam ac­cel­er­a­tion from 6 to 150 MeV and en­ergy re­cov­ery. Nu­mer­i­cal beam dy­nam­ics sim­u­la­tions have ac­com­pa­nied and even­tu­ally val­i­dated the quadru­pole-dou­blet FFAG cell tech­nol­ogy and pa­ra­me­ters, and fol­low­ing that the com­plete re­turn loop, all along the ERL lat­tice de­sign process. They are key to as­sess­ing and val­i­dat­ing the ERL op­tics and beam be­hav­ior over the whole ac­cel­er­a­tion/ER cycle, and in prepar­ing fu­ture ma­chine op­er­a­tion. This paper pre­sents var­i­ous of these beam dy­nam­ics stud­ies, in­clud­ing start-to-end sim­u­la­tions.
