Experiments on stability and quench propagation were performed on a NbTi hollow conductor test module allowing heat conduction only between adjacent layers, while the turns in a layer are thermally insulated (2-D winding). The measurements performed over a wide range of operating conditions were used as the experimental data-base for the comparison with the results of the simulations done using the quench analysis code SARUMAN. In the paper the experimental results are compared with the predictions of a 2-D version of SARUMAN, which show that the simulation is able to reproduce the general features of the quench propagation experiments. © 1995 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
