CHATS-AS is an ongoing series of
that has run every 2-3 years from 1993.
Created as a small forum of
discussion to advance the art and science of simulation and
modeling - in particular thermo-hydraulics -
in support of superconducting magnet design programs, the workshop
has evolved and expanded its scope to encompass all aspects
of superconducting system modeling,
with special emphasis on bringing together modelers and experimentalists.
By bridging this gap, CHATS-AS has contributed to the development and
refinement of models used in the analysis of stability and quench
in superconductors. Likewise, modeling has been brought to both
interpret experimental data, or to design experimental campaigns
in support of magnet system design.
The fruitful interaction
between the experimental and modeling approaches has resulted
in the advancement of our understanding of different fundamental
phenomena, independent of application. As such, CHATS-AS has brought
together researchers from many different applied superconductivity
communities: HEP, fusion, power applications, etc.
The workshop is
open to both LTS and HTS applications, with a special interest in
extending the LTS experience in modeling superconducting devices
to the realm of HTS applications. Of special interest is the development
of new multi-physics models (thermo-hydraulic, electrodynamics,
and mechanical) for the analysis and design of superconducting devices,
and the validation and refinement of said models through experimentation
and magnet operational experience.
