Study of the mechanical heat generation inside the inner vessel installed with a superconducting coil
In this study, the mechanical heat loss inside the inner vessel installed with a superconducting coil (SC-coil) was investigated which increases the heat load in the on-board superconducting magnets for the JR MAGLEV system. Vibration tests for the SC-coil-installed inner vessel were performed to investigate the relation between heat load and vibration. Strain distribution analysis of the SC-coil was performed to evaluate the heat generating area inside the inner vessel. These results proved that the SC-coil strain distribution analysis would be an effective method to evaluate the mechanical heat generating area inside the inner vessel.
