was the workshop #8 in the series.
In the natural, green and open-minded environment of the KEK campus in Tsukuba,
Japan, the small-scale CHATS-AS workshop, with its enthusiastic participants and
informal character of the discussions confirmed to be
a pleasant and effective way of sharing knowledge and experience.
- The session for the
fusion applications started with an invited talk of the role of superconductor
modeling in ITER and 11 presentations followed. Thermal-hydraulic modeling
was presented for a tool to simulate ITER coil operation. Modeling of
Nb3Sn CICC performance degradation due to strand bending and inter-filament
current transfer was presented. A coil designer noted no useful AC loss
model yet available. In other words, other modeling may be developed to
the useful level to design fusion coils.
- In the session for the accelerator
applications, five presentations were made. The session was opened with the
invited presentation about the Nb3Sn magnet development for future accelerator
application. Other presentations were mostly devoted for the modeling and/or
experiment on the thermo-hydraulic and electro-magnetic phenomena such as
quench or stability for LTS.
- On HTS, seven presentations were made.
This number of presentations shows an increasing attention on stability
(normal transition) of HTS. The session covered from basic phenomena in
quench of HTS to fundamental but application-oriented issues.
