Scaling laws for modeling large superconducting solenoids

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The neutrino factory cooling system will consist of a long series of superconducting solenoids with a warm bore of 1.2 meters. In order to minimize the cost of the 200 to 300-meter long solenoid muon-cooling channel, the solenoids must be fabricated so that their mass is minimized. This report discusses how one can model the stress, strain and quench behavior of these large solenoid sections by building one-third to one-half scale models of the magnets. The cost of building and engineering the scale model magnets is a small fraction of the cost of fabricating a full-scale magnet section. This report ... continued below

The cost of building and engineering the scale model magnets is a small fraction of the cost of fabricating a full-scale magnet section. This report discusses the limitations of the scaling approach as well as the types of superconducting solenoids for which the modeling technique is suitable.
