In a linear non-scaling FFAG the betatron tunes vary over a wide range during acceleration. This naturally leads to multiple resonance crossing including first order integer resonances. The S-POD (Simulator for Particle Orbit Dynamics) plasma trap apparatus at Hiroshima University represents a physically equivalent system to a charged particle beam travelling in a strong focusing accelerator lattice. The S-POD system can be used as an experimental simulation to investigate the effects of resonance crossing and its dependence on dipole errors, tune crossing speed and other factors. Recent developments and experiments are discussed. Copyright © 2013 by JACoW- cc Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 (CC-BY-3.0).
