In overdue 1877, Louis Cailletete in France and Raoul Pictet in Switzerland independently succeeded in liquefying oxygen, thereby proving a speculation set forth through Antoine Lavoisier approximately a hundred years previous. The subject matter of the 1977 Cryogenic Engineering convention "Cryogenics: A Century of Progress-A Chal­ lenge for the long run" adequately honored this accomplishment through reviewing a number of the noteworthy advances when you consider that that point and outlining many advances nonetheless to return. either Volumes 23 and 24 of this sequence offer an outstanding account of the various contributions that have been awarded at this convention. The 1977 Cryogenic Engineering convention was once properly back held in Boulder, Colorado the place the 1st Cryogenic Engineering convention was once initiated 23 years in the past by way of the overdue Russell B. Scott, then leader of the Cryogenic Engineering Laboratory of the nationwide Bureau of criteria. The Cryogenic Engineering convention Board is very thankful to individuals of the nationwide Bureau of criteria and the collage of Colorado for serving as hosts for this assembly of cryogenic experts from worldwide. The Cryogenic Engineering convention is back happy to have had the overseas Cryogenic fabrics convention co-host this biennial assembly for the second one time in succession. This joint attempt back has approved an in-depth assurance of study on technical fabrics in parts presently receiving fundamental consciousness via the cryogenic engineering neighborhood. The complaints of the Inter­ nationwide Cryogenic fabrics convention might be released as quantity 24 of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering.

The overhead frame is engaged to a banding lathe as shown in Fig. 3. That is, the overhead frame will travel along the lathe as it rotates. Several pulleys, which are mounted to the overhead frame, are used to guide the banding. Fig. 3. Banding system and overhead frame. Fabrication Experiences and Operating Characteristics of the U.

SYSTEM DESCRIPTIONS Tables I, II, and III list the preliminary design characteristics for the three cases. Figure 1 is a simplified assembly drawing for design No. 1.

Burkhart The main components of the magnet system shown in Fig. 1 are the upper and lower superconducting racetrack coils, internal and external coil support structure and the iron pole pieces.

The low mass of the helium shell, relative to that of the magnet and cold bore tube, allows a temperature difference to be developed between them, resulting in potentially high thermal stresses. The largest stress will occur at the cold bore tube-flange weld, and can readily exceed the yield strength of the material. To avoid excessive thermal stresses, the temperature difference between the bore tube and the helium shell is monitored and controlled during cooldown from 300 to 100 K. The temperature difference is controlled by adjusting the temperature of the helium supplied by the refrigerator.
