Status of Suspension Connection For SSC Coil Assembly
Superconducting Super Collider dipole magnets require an integrated suspension system to meet the structural and thermal requirements outlined in the design criteria. Sliding suspension connections which retain the cold mass assembly during static and dynamic loading, while allowing axial motion during thermal contraction are an integral part of this magnet suspension system. Variations from the original prototype design have been tested and their performance compared. The results of these evaluations, and areas of future investigation are described.
