The hydraulic solver Flower and its validation against the QUELL experiment in SULTAN

Knowledge of the hydraulic boundary conditions is a prerequisite for accurate estimates of the quench characteristics of superconducting magnets. A set of routines (Flower) has been designed and interfaced to the code Gandalf to provide a simplified model of the hydraulic connections to a cryogenic plant of a coil using cable-in-conduit conductors with central cooling channel. The validation against experimental data provided by the Quench Experiment on Long Length (QUELL) in the CRPP facility SULTAN have shown that Flower is able to simulate the hydraulic boundary conditions within engineering limits of accuracy.
