Using Opera for Fusion Energy Applications

3pm :: Wednesday 25th October :: 2017 In this webinar we will show examples of fusion design calculations using Opera, and we will demonstrate features of Opera which help users create and analyse fusion simulations and models easily. These include simulating plasma disruptions and motion, where the plasma current decays and / or the plasma moves [...] Posted in Magnets,Plasma Discharge

MRI Shielding Optimization in Opera – 15 minute overview

In this 15-minute presentation we show the benefits Opera Optimizer offers when used in conjunction with magnetostatic analysis for MRI shielding applications. We also demonstrate the benefits of the new “thin plate” boundary condition, which increases efficiency without compromising accuracy, and how Opera provides the ability for MRI shielded room designers to customize the Modeller [...] Posted in Magnets,Magnets Paper,MRI / NMR Magnets

NDT Device Design in Opera – 15 minute overview

Non-destructive testing or evaluation (NDT or NDE) is a process used in industry to evaluate properties of a material or a system without damaging it. Some of the uses of NDT are flaw detection and evaluation, leak detection, location determination, dimensional measurements, structure and Microstructure characterization, estimation of mechanical and physical properties, stress (strain) and [...] Posted in NDT Papers

Magnetic Signature Identification using Pareto optimization

Christopher Riley, Engineering Manager, Cobham Technical Services Abstract Determining the topology of a naval vessel from its measured magnetic signature is a classic inverse problem – what is the source of the observed response? This paper explores an alternative to classical inverse methods with a technique that is used in design optimization. Pareto optimization is [...] Posted in General,Magnets,Magnets Paper

CERN and LHC-AUP developing quadrupole magnets

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is set to be upgraded to the High-Luminosity LHC and this will require over one kilometre of the machine needing to be replaced, Phys.org recently discussed. Installation isn’t set to begin until 2024 but scientists and engineers around the world are already starting to develop the new magnets that will [...] Posted in Accelerator Magnets,General,Magnets
