Field computation for a neutrino detector magnet: the effect of small gaps in large bodies

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The presence of small features such as thin gaps in a large magnetic object presents difficulties for numerical computation. The proposed MINOS neutrino detector displays just such a difficulty, small ({approx}1 mm) but unavoidable gaps in the large ({approx}8 m) iron of the magnets. This paper describes the process of obtaining adequate precision while modeling those gaps.
