Abstract

The torodial-field (TF) magnet coils for ITER are made by superconducting cable in conduit conductors (CICC) using 316LN for the conduit. Compaction of the conduit and heat treatment to react the Nb3Sn material are one of the main steps during manufacture of this type of conductor. Therefore a systematic investigation was done to examine the influence of compaction and heat treatment on the mechanical behavior of this material. Several 316LN tubes were deformed to smaller radii to obtain different stages of compaction, followed by a heat treatment. From these tubes flat specimen were made by electron-discharge-machining (EDM) for tensile tests. The results are reported and compared to former tests on samples either compacted or heat treated. © 2010 American Institute of physics.
