Special sessions

Special session on modeling for application.

Chairs: Frédéric Sirois, Marco Breschi and Arnaud Badel

The design of superconducting applications is challenging due to their unique non-linear strongly coupled electrical/mechanical/thermal properties. Substantial efforts have been dedicated to the modelling of large-scale applications from very local to macroscopic analysis, using both analytical and numerical approaches. The major part of the developments has been conducted by various the application communities, historically for LTS devices and more recently for HTS applications, but the numerical modelling community also played a role and is likely to play an increasing role in the future, as models become more and more specialized.
The aim of this session is to create an opportunity for all these communities to exchange their experiences, from general know-how to state of the art developments.
This special session will be initiated by keynotes speakers presenting the state-of-the art in:
These three 30 minutes presentations will be followed by a round table involving the keynote speakers and a few other people representing the characterization community, the application designers, etc.
A 2-hour special poster session will follow, with a reduced number of invited contributions showing a broad spectrum of ongoing modelling activities.
