Tensile Stress-Strain Measurements of Nb3Sn Superconducting Strands and Cables at Room Temperature.

Buechler, Elizabeth D.

The objective of this study was to determine the mechanical properties of Nb3Sn superconductors for Mevion Medical Systems, a provider of superconducting synchrocyclotrons for proton therapy cancer treatment. These particle accelerators use magnets made from Nb3Sn to produce the high magnetic fields necessary to accelerate protons. Tensile tests were performed at room temperature on reacted and u... read more
