To tackle the multi-scale problem in the quench simulation of superconducting accelerator magnets, this work proposes a hybrid numerical method which uses two-dimensional first-order finite-elements in the magnet cross-section and one-dimensional higher-order orthogonal polynomials in longitudinal direction.

Winding functions in transient magnetoquasistatic field-circuit coupled simulations
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to review the mutual coupling of electromagnetic fields in the magnetic vector potential formulation with electric circuits in terms of (modified) nodal and
A spectral element method using the modal basis and its application in solving second‐order nonlinear partial differential equations
We present a high‐order spectral element method (SEM) using modal (or hierarchical) basis for modeling of some nonlinear second‐order partial differential equations in two‐dimensional spatial space.
Spectral Methods: Algorithms, Analysis and Applications
Along with finite differences and finite elements, spectral methods are one of the three main methodologies for solving partial differential equations on computers. This book provides a detailed
Efficient compilation of a class of variational forms
An algorithm for efficient pretabulation of the reference tensor is designed and implemented in the FEniCS Form Compiler and improves on a previous loop-based implementation by several orders of magnitude, thus shortening compile-times and development cycles for users of FFC.
