Magnetic and Mechanical 3-D Modelling of a 15 T Large Aperture Dipole Magnet

In 2018, two structures have been proposed with the goal of replacing the magnetEDIPOthat stopped operating in 2016. These two solutions were designed to generate a field of 15 T on an aperture of 100 x 150 mm2 at 4.2 K by using Nb 3Sn superconducting Rutherford cable. After the boarding review, which took place in December 2018, a solution consisting of 6-double-layers coils was retained, based on the 2-D modelling results. We now extend the study, by considering the 3-D models, with the goal of concluding the magnet conceptual design. The target is to obtain a homogeneous field, with 1% of homogeneity, over a length of 1000 mm, which allows the testing of superconducting cables for both fusion and high-energy physics. The double-layers coils, of the block-type magnet, have flared ends to allow the aperture to cross the magnet length. The 6-coils solution differs from previous similar projects as the FRESCA2 and HD2 magnets, where 4-coils were used.
