STEAM Collaboration Meeting 2017

From September 21st-22nd experts from CERN, Geneva and Tampere University of Technology, Finland and Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany meet at the Graduate School CE, Darmstadt. They discuss models and methods for the simulations of transient effects in superconducting magnets and circuits. The key feature of the STEAM framework is the co-simulation of numerical models.

New Paper on Co-Simulation for Quench Protection at CERN

Our paper on “Optimized Field/Circuit Coupling for the Simulation of Quenches in Superconducting Magnets” has been accepted by the IEEE Journal on Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Techniques. The paper proposes an optimised waveform-relaxation approach for the simulation of magnetothermal transients in superconducting magnets. The work has been carried in the framework STEAM together with CERN.

Michal Maciejewski from CERN is visiting CE

CERNlogoSScadreOn Friday, July 1st Michal Maciejewski from CERN and Lodz University of Technology is visiting Computational Engineering at TU Darmstadt in the framework of the STEAM (“Simulation of Transient Effects in Accelerator Magnets”) cooperation, see e.g. this presentation. The aim of this project is the accurate prediction of quenches.

Quench Simulation Workshop with CERN

The workshop on quench simulation (18 to 19 Aug 2014) brings together researchers and developers from CERN, Geneva, the Graduate School CE and the Computational Electromagnetics Laboratory (TEMF), TU Darmstadt. They will discuss on efficient numerical multi-phyiscs simulation techniques for transient effects in superconducting accelerator magnets. Modeling of the multi-physical system, methods for the numerical treatment but also stability and implementational aspects will be covered. Continue reading →
