In the frame of the collab-oration with INFN-LNF, SLAC (USA) we are working closely on design studies, fabrication and high-power operation of Ka-band accelerating structures. In par-ticular, new manufacturing techniques for hard-copper structures are being investigated in order to determine the maximum sustainable gradients above 150 MV/m and extremely low probability of RF breakdown. In this paper, the preliminary RF and mechanical design as well as beam dynamics estimations for a Ka-Band accelerating structure at 35 GHz are presented together with discussions on practical accelerating gradients and maximum average beam current throughput.
