Conceptual and experimental results of the transverse normal zone propagation in the B0 ATLAS-Barrel model coil


The normal zone propagation velocity is an important feature in the design of a superconducting magnet. In the particular case of the ATLAS-Barrel toroid coil protection, it is all the more important as the fast discharge is essentially realized through the toroid windings by exciting quench heaters. The time constant of that fast discharge, and… (More)
