CHATS-AS 2015 was the workshop #11 in the series.
The CHATS on Applied Superconductivity Workshop was organized by the
University of Bologna (Bologna, Italy) and held at the Department of
Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering on 14-16th September 2015.
The Workshop was the eleventh in a series started in 1993.
The initial scope of the CHATS-AS Workshops was to reach convergence in
the scientific community in the simulation of thermo-hydraulic transients
in Cable in Conduit Conductors for fusion magnets. Since then, the topics
of interest of the Workshop expanded to encompass a broad range of
applications of superconducting materials.
The CHATS-AS 2015 followed the advancements in the state-of-the-art of
modeling of superconducting systems for a broad range of applications,
from magnet technology (including fusion and high energy physics) to
power applications for generation and transmission devices. The 53
participants presented a total of 30 oral contributions on Thermo-hydraulics
and cryogenics (Session 1), LTS quench (Session 2), HTS quench (Session 3),
HTS Electromagnetics (Session 4), Design methods and Mechanics (Session 5).
As fallout of the CHATS-AS Workshop series, the original idea discussed at
CHATS-AS 2011 at CERN to spread the knowledge and experience of this very
active scientific community to young scientists has finally taken shape.
In close interaction with the International Organizing Committee of the HTS
Modeling Workshop, and with the outstanding support of ESAS and IEEE Council
on Superconductivity, the first "International School on Numerical Modeling
for Applied Superconductivity" was successfully organized at EPFL in Lausanne,
Switzerland, in June 2016.
