Abstract
A series of model magnets is being constructed and tested at Fermilab in or der to verify the design of high gradient quadrupole magnets for the LHC in teraction region inner triplets. The 2m models are being built in order to refine the mechanical and magnetic design, optimize fabrication and assembl y tooling, and ensure adequate quench performance, This has been carried ou t using a complementary combination of analytical and FEA modeling, empiric al tests on 0.4m mechanical assemblies, and testing of model magnets during fabrication and under cryogenic conditions. The results of these tests and studies have led to improvements in the design of the magnet end restraint s, to a preferred choice in coil end part material, and to a better underst anding of factors affecting coil stress throughout the fabrication and oper ational stages.
