Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF APPLICATION OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS TO EM LAUNCH COMPONENTS. THE PROJECT WILL STUDY PULSED HIGH REPETITION RATE, HIGH CURRENT SUPERCONDUCTING COMPONENTS SUCH AS BUSBARS, INDUCTORS, AUGMENTING RAILS, ETC. TO EVALUATE PULSED HEAT LOADS WHICH PRESENT A KEY POTENTIAL BARRIER TO CONCEPT FEASIBILITY. RAPID TRANSIENT HEAT TRANSFER WILL BE DEVELOPED AND APPLIED TO SEVERAL POTENTIAL COMPONENT CONFIGURATIONS. MATERIALS PROPERTIES WILL BE DOCUMENTED AND COMPONENTS ASSESSED TO DETERMINE CONCEPTS WITH HIGH PERFORMANCE AND BENEFIT. LIMITS FOR STABLE OPERATION UNDER PULSED POWER CONDITIONS WILL BE EVALUATED. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR REQUIRED ANALYSIS AND EXPERIMENTS TO DEMONSTRATE HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGY TO COMPONENTS OF EM LAUNCHERS WILL BE DEVELOPED.
