The detailed design of a high-field superconducting dipole magnet has been finalized with the aim to make available a new facility to perform tests of large superconducting conductors in high magnetic fields (B = 12.5 T). In view of the relative complexity of the system to be designed, 2D and 3D finite element models of the dipole have been built, and several electromagnetic and thermo-mechanical analyses have been performed, in order to study, optimize and verify the requirements of the system. The obtained results have shown the feasibility of the system with respect to the adopted electromagnetic and mechanical design criteria. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
