Low-temperature superconductors such as NbTi are widely used in high field magnets. The run for higher fields leads to greater forces on the conductor, which is pushed closer to its mechanical limit. Managing the higher stresses on the conductor supposes accurate mechanical models: it becomes necessary to simulate local peak stresses and strains, especially with conductors, which are mechanically brittle and strain-sensitive. Superconducting cables are anisotropic composite structures that can… CONTINUE READING
