Cryogenic and Mechanical Design of a Large, Six Tesla Dipole Magnet
The existing magnet in the LORHO facility at the Arnold Engineering Development Center is being modified to provide higher fields over a greater volume in two operating modes: (1) a pulsed, cryogenic mode, which will produce a peak field in excess of 6 T (tesla) for 15 sec or more, and (2) a warm mode, which will produce a field with a peak near 4 T. In both modes the magnet will be powered from an existing supply upgraded to deliver 27 MW to the magnet terminals.
