End designs for superconducting magnets

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

New accelerators such as the Tevatron Upgrade frequently require higher magnetic fields that have been conventionally used in superconducting magnets. Modern magnet designs often have a smaller bore diameter and wider cable than the early (e.g., Tevatron) superconducting coils and are consequently harder to wind. These developments make consideration of end winding more important. End parts must be made to confine the conductors to a consistent shape. This shape must be defined and described to both the parts manufacturers and those analyzing the magnetic field. Internal stresses in the cable must be minimized. It has therefore become necessary to reevaluate ... continued below

Description

New accelerators such as the Tevatron Upgrade frequently require higher magnetic fields that have been conventionally used in superconducting magnets. Modern magnet designs often have a smaller bore diameter and wider cable than the early (e.g., Tevatron) superconducting coils and are consequently harder to wind. These developments make consideration of end winding more important. End parts must be made to confine the conductors to a consistent shape. This shape must be defined and described to both the parts manufacturers and those analyzing the magnetic field. Internal stresses in the cable must be minimized. It has therefore become necessary to reevaluate the methods used to determine the configuration of a magnetic end. This note describes those methods and attempts to apply them to possible cross sections for high field dipoles. The original Tevatron dipole end configuration is reviewed for reference. 3 refs., 10 figs., 1 tab.
