CHATS 2005 was the workshop # 6 in the series.
- Although the contribution from the field of HTS was only modestly
represented, the earlier opening to cable electromagnetics and now also to
mechanics appeared fruitful. It is recognized more broadly now that the
change in the voltage-current characteristics, in going from single strands
to cables and magnets, requires an integrated multi-physics modeling of
the dependence on the operating conditions of temperature, field, current
- In the discussions and in some of the papers it appeared that there
are still many open questions in dual channel CICC's. There is a need to
review the status of experimental data on input parameters versus model input
needs, e.g., for a solid understanding of helium heat transfer correlations
in complex geometries.
- Predictive (rather than a-posteriori) simulations would be welcomed
for upcoming CICC-based projects and other applications as power cables,
accelerators etc. for critical evaluation.
- From the enthusiastic responses of many participants is may be
concluded that such informal workshop, bringing together a small group of
experts with plenty of time for discussion, is a pleasant and effective
way of sharing knowledge and experience.
