Heat Transfer Related to Superconducting Magnet Stability: He II - He I Dynamic Limits

  • T. H. K. Frederking
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 35)


Increased sophistication of low-Tc superconducting magnets and the advent of high-Tc materials has demanded a more detailed understanding of stability limits related to superconductor-fluid interaction. An example is the set of quench scenarios for vari-ous fluid states (liquid baths). Highlights of recent work in heat transfer-mediated mag-net stability1 are presented selecting the example of triple-phase nucleate boiling stability limits for illustration (Tc = superconducting state transition temperature).
