Riassunto analitico
This thesis starts from the analytical mechanical analysis of a superconducting
solenoid, loaded by self generated Lorentz forces. Also, a finite element
model is proposed and verified with the analytical results. To study the
anisotropic behavior of a coil made by layers of superconductor and insulation,
a finite element meso-mechanic model is proposed and designed. The
resulting material properties are then used in the main solenoid analysis.
In parallel, design work is performed as well: an existing Insert Test Facility
(ITF) is adapted and structurally verified to support a coil made of
YBa2Cu3O7, a High Temperature Superconductor (HTS). Finally, a technological
winding process was proposed and the required tooling is designed.
