Construction and component testing of TAMU3, a 14 Tesla stress-managed Nb3Sn model dipole Conference Paper uri icon


  • We report the construction and testing of components of TAMU3, a 14 Tesla Nb 3Sn block-coil dipole. A primary goal in developing this model dipole is to test a method of stress management in which Lorentz stress is intercepted within the coil assembly and bypassed so that it cannot accumulate to a level that would cause strain degradation in the superconducting windings. Details of the fabrication, tooling, and results of construction and magnet component testing will be presented. © 2012 American Institute of Physics.
