In the 40 mm SSC cross-section design radial helium venting passages located every 6″ were present. The purpose of these passages was to provide escape routes for helium from the coil cooling passage to the bypasses during a quench. The passages are introduced in the magnet by placing special yoke laminations with channels going from the bypasses to the inner radius.
