A significant amount (over 70 runs) of experimental data on stability margin and quench behaviour In a two-dimensional, forced-flow cooled NbTi winding pack has been collected. The measurements performed over a wide range of operating conditions (operating current, field and temperature) have been used as the experimental data-base for the comparison with the results of the simulations done using the quench analysis code SARUMAN. Here we present the results of the experimental and validation activities, which show that SARUMAN can successfully predict stability margin and quench propagation in a 3-D winding. © 1994 IEEE
