OVERVIEW

87010  Superconducting Magnets for Particle Accelerators

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides the basic skills for the design of magnets for accelerator machines and introduces the use of computational tools for the solution of problems involving the application of differential equations to partial derivatives in magnetostatics. Particular emphasis is given to the design and construction of superconducting magnets also thanks to the external support of ASG Superconductors

TEACHING METHODS

Combination of traditional lectures (40 hours), tutorial for finite element computation (8 hours) and a visit to an industry involved in superconducting magnet development (4 hours).

EXAM DESCRIPTION

Oral examination

ASSESSMENT METHODS

Dissertation on a specific subject agreed with the Lecturer complemented with an oral exam, including a presentation of the study reported in the dissertation (Weight 60%). Questions about the performed study are asked  during presentation (Weight 20%).  Finally the student is asked to answer one question about a topic of the course program (Weight 20%).

Through the oral examination, the commission is able to assess the degree of knowledge of the subjects exposed, the clarity and the ability to summarize of the student.
