Quench Simulation of 3 Tesla SSC Dipole Magnets
In order to proceed with the design of magnets for the superferric 3 tesla version of the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC), it was necessary to simulate quenches by the use of computer programs. For this simulation, we used two different programs, a modified version of ‘QUENCH’, and ‘SSC*’, a program developed specifically for this magnet design.
