One of the key devices of the HL-LHC project are SRF crab cavities. A cryomodule with two Double Quarter Wave (DQW) crab cavities has been successfully fabricat-ed and tested with beam at CERN whereas the Radio Frequency Dipole (RFD) crab cavities are currently on its fabrication process. The paper provides an insight on the multiple calculations carried out to evaluate the thermal and mechanical performance of the DQW and RFD cavi-ties and its components. In some cases, the presence of RF fields inside the cavity volume requires the use of mul-tiphysics numerical models capable of coupling these fields with the thermal and mechanical domains. In fact, the RF field presents a strong dependency on the cavity shape, whereas the mechanical, thermal and electrical properties of the materials may substantially vary as a function of temperature, which in turn depends on the RF field. The results presented in this paper, using both cou-pled and uncoupled models, allowed elucidating the importance of physics coupling on the numerical evalua-tion of RF cavities and its components. Analyses were also of great support for the design evaluation and im-provement of future prototypes.
