An Engineering Design Study of Detector Deformation Limits in the SSC SDC-Detector

  • Kent K. Leung
  • Jeffrey L. Western


The 18,500-metric-ton muon magnet support system (MMSS) is the major component for the large detector proposed by the Solenoidal Detector Collaboration (SDC). The SDC detector requires thick slabs of steel as an absorber. The purpose of this study is to determine and understand the major impact the deflection of the toroid and stress in the connecting bolts have on the magnet design.
