Three-dimensional finite element simulations of the rolling of superconducting wire

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The goal of this work was to show the utility of using finite-element simulations to ascertain the quality of superconducting tape, created by the repeated rolling of an initially round wire. Steady-state simulations of the rolling reductions of a two, material superconducting wire were performed using ISAIAH, a three-dimensional nonlinear finite-element code. The simulations were done in conjunction with Dave Korzekwa at Los Alamos National Laboratory to produce results that could be compared with experimental findings. Results indicate that ISAIAH is capable of producing potentially useful data, but further work is necessary to obtain meaningful quantitative comparisons between simulations and ... continued below
