Experiments conducted to determine the resistance of demountable HTS lap joints with variations in compressive stress are reported here. A joint fixture was constructed that enabled the simultaneous testing of multiple joints of different configurations. The joint fixture was installed in a loading facility, comprising a pneumatic press mounted in a vacuum(More)
A team comprised of the Tai-Yang Research Company, Creare, Inc., and the Advanced Space Propulsion Laboratory at NASA has designed, fabricated and tested a high-temperature superconducting magnet and flow cooling system for a space propulsion application. The magnet bore is 16 cm dia., 5.5 cm long, and generates 0.5 T, with a design operating current of 126(More)
