The concept of a flux jump is now well known and several authors1–4 have reported experimental results on values of H fj (the lowest magnetic field for which a flux jump can occur). Theoretical calculations, using various hypotheses about the orders of magnitude of D th and D m (thermal and magnetic diffusivities) were also made4–7 and gave rather similar expressions for H fj.
