Abstract

Bi-2223 tape was one of the high-temperature superconductors with commercial applications. One of the applications was bending and winding Bi-2223 tape into solenoids to produce high magnetic fields. To study bending properties, three multifilamentary of Bi-2223 tapes sheathed with silver alloys were manufactured. Bending experiments for the tapes were performed, and critical currents I c of tapes with definite bending radius were measured. And, current transferring mechanisms in filaments were analyzed, as well. Experimental results showed that silver alloy sheathed tapes had better bending properties than pure silver-sheathed one. On the contrary, to describe bending radius dependence of I c , a statistical model was suggested. The model expected that bending radius dependence of I c was following an exponential law that was quantitatively expressed by mathematic expressions. Bending dependence of I c could be calculated from the expression and calculated results agreed with experimental data very well. Therefore, the suggested model has successfully explained the experimental results.
