Finite-element simulation and performance of pulsed magnets

The design of a high-energy pulsed magnet is a challenging task and usually implies substantial calculation efforts. As the maximum stress is located in the mid-plane of the magnet, this region is usually the only focus of analysis. For that a number of well-established algorithms are available. However, the coil performance is governed not exclusively by the mid-plane. Therefore, it is important to simulate the whole coil behavior. Here we report on a simulation approach used among others at the Hochfeld-Magnetlabor Dresden (HLD). Assuming axial symmetry of the coil, the cross section of the magnet is modeled by finite elements. We illustrate this simulation technique for an 8.5 MJ 70 Tesla mono-coil and a 46 MJ double-coil magnet designed at the HLD.
