10 Section View of the Complete Assembly

11 Cold Mass Support System 4 sets of Links anchored to the Cold Mass and Outer Casing to carry an Axial load on Cold Mass of 200 KN. Each link is pre- tensioned to 50 KN when cold. Each pair of links is skewed relative to each other to provide torsional stiffness Each Link is made of 2 Glass fiber Epoxy (E-Glass) links and one stainless steel link cooled to 50 0 K. All the links and the cold mass support system are linked through stainless steel pins. Anchor point on the outer casing includes a mechanism to pre-tension the links and help to align the cold mass accurately

18 Complete Link

19 E Glass Strap Stainless Steel Block

20 Components of the Integrated Tensioning Device/ Anchor on warm vessel The device also prevents twisting of the link during the tensioning operation.

21 Mounting Brackets on the Cold Mass

22 Integrated Tensioning Device/ Anchor on warm vessel End Cap welded to form a vacuum tight joint.

23 Pre -Tension Control T = 0.2 F i d p T – Torque in N-m F i – Tension in support link KN d p – pitch diameter of thread mm Tension KNTorque N-m Example

24 One turn of the nut moves the screw (cold mass) through one pitch. Pitch of screw = 2 mm Therefore one turn of the nut moves the corresponding mounting point of the cold mass through 2 mm Position Control of Cold Mass A table showing the relationships between angular and radial positions of the cold mass centre line and rotation of the adjustment nuts will be compiled. This can be used during the assembly/ setup

25 Summary statement The design on the Cold Mass support system is adequate to take on the imbalance magnet force while allowing independent adjustment of the position of cold mass Further work Dip in the vessel shell under tension load: Manual calculations indicate a deflection of 0.5mm. A FE analysis will be done and the anchor points will be strengthened locally if necessary Shrinkage during vacuum: Would this shrinkage reduces the pre-tension load? Table of the adjustment of the individual cold mass support link to the positioning / alignment of the magnet. These will be ready by the next collaboration meeting in October.
