Subject: "IR +- 1m Engineering" Meeting Notes 14 April 1995
Mike showed a re-optimized 3-tip LEB mask which accommodates the
required mask cooling input tube. This gives new inner radii
values for B1 resulting in a B1 strength equal to the CDR value
(no margin). Increasing the outer radii by 2,3,4,4,5,5,5 mm
respectively for blocks 2 through 8 results in a B1 strength 3.6%
higher than CDR (or 3.6% margin). This leaves 4 mm for cooling
the outer side of the blocks and another 1 mm for clearance to the
300 mr line. Stan showed the results of moving the outer radii of
blocks 2 through 8 out another 4 mm (using the cooling space) and
decreasing all inner block radii by 1 mm (reducing air gap to 2
mm). It gives 10% margin over the CDR.
Stan discussed some of the advice obtained from talking to magnet
experts. Generally it is expected that one can get within 3% of
expected remnant field, within a degree of the correct direction.
Space between blocks could result in another 3% loss in strength.
Recommended margin ranged from a few % to 15%. A margin of 10%
would seem adequate or comfortable?
John Hodgson reported on results of cooling the out board ends of
the PM blocks assuming a constant crossection 9 mm thick brass
"pressure vessel" holding the blocks. He finds cooling only the
back end results in good temperature uniformity for B1. This
result, somewhat surprising, depends on the air gap insulation
between B1 and the mask.
Fred and Roy showed the cooling cone geometry and the gimbals
arrangement.
We discussed the treaty line and clearance zone (DMZ) between
vertex cone and B1 outer surface. Working proposal is the cone
stays outside of 300 mr + 1 mm. B1 stays inside 300 mr - 2 mm.
Treaty line is slightly more complicated at the front end of B1;
a drawing and r,z table will be generated by Roy/Fred early next
week. Written treaty surface to be agreed on then.
