US Bracket Support for Stave D. Lynn (BNL), LBNL Mechanical Meeting, Sep
2 Peek Flex-Edge Peek Z-Support Peek Rigid-Edge CF composite beam Bracket Design Main idea behind this approach is that the Rigid-Edge serves as the fiducial edge. The Flex-Edge pushes stave against fiducial Rigid-Edge. End insertion is very simple.
13 degree Support; CORE = 1.3 mm. 3 CF Ribs
Detector Envelope and Lorentz Angle With above detector envelope can probably do about 13 degrees Lorentz angle. May go lower depending upon final envelope, but 10 degrees is probably not possible 4
Prototype I Carbon Fiber/Peek Bracket Prototypes Recently Built Spring 2012 CF/Peek design is radiation hard. Peek creep shown not to be an issue. Insertion tests with 1.3 m stave are very smooth as hoped. Have iterated design (Prototype II) of flex part of bracket to keep stave in brackets should large (accidental) normal force be applied to stave. Prototype I brackets were sent to the UK for evaluation. 5
6 Prototype I and Prototype II Flex Performance Prototype I (now in UK) Prototype II (just now being finished) I II Prototype I Prototype II After initial testing, modified design to prevent stave from popping out Prevents stave from falling down
Deflection as a function of force tests Peek Flexible brackets were machined at Yale; production brackets to be injection molded. However, excellent uniformity among brackets 2-4, and surprisingly close to Anatoli’s design point. The surprise is due to our not knowing beforehand the modulus of our peek. D. Lynn talk, Oxford, Feb 2012, discusses dependence of peek young’s modulus with annealing history. Note here that brackets 2-4 were annealed at Yale, bracket 1 was not! 7
Need line and two extra points circled in red when we measure next set of brackets Need also to determine if there is a bow in CF piece Circles provide collinearity measurement A B E O D C Yale OGP Measurements of Prototype I Measurements were quickly done at Yale “Constellation” plots revealed more variation than desired Yale has improved its assembly tooling for prototype II Yale will more carefully make OGP measurements of prototype ii as they will have more time Height variations larger than desired Bracket Constellation Plot 8
9 Brackets should push resonant frequency higher (but have only measured with frame mimicking brackets up to now) Measure frequency response to impulse. Compare frequency response of simple end support (lowest stave frequency) and frame support, where frame support mimics US style brackets with elastic peek brackets. First resonant frequency with end support is 18 Hz (14 Hz is simulation value). First resonant frequency jumps to 156 Hz with frame (5 brackets) support. End SupportFrame Support 18 Hz 60 Hz108 Hz156 Hz Impact Response with Stave in Frame
New baseplate for DC-DC stave assembly will also include bracket mounting holes for bracket mount testing 10

12 Locking Ideas We have not pursued a locking mechanism design pending a decision on where the fixation point should be. Choices are at z = 0 or z-outer (depends upon stave length). Note large active area gap between +/- z staves due to detector dead space shown below. Likely a z-outer fixation can be developed that increases the gap by an amount that is small compared to the naturally existing one. The LSWG can be of benefit by working toward settling this issue. Z fixation serves two purposes 1.Define fixed point for thermal contractions (or CME??). 2.Protect stave during services installation. Maybe have z = 0 fixation for point 1 and a temporary fixation point at z-outer for services installation? Approx 1.3 mm dead space on detector Old Slide (LSWG June 2011) but still relevant
Locking Ideas Drawing from R. Nickerson’s SLAC 2012 Talk Hopefully can demonstrate pipes need not bend under EOS Z-fixation pin and Services strain relief (don’t over-constrain in x and y) Separate bracket function from z-fixation/services relief function Idea derived from UK drawing below 13
14 Radiation Length Prototype I Radiation Length Maybe be able to reduce by making width of brackets less (width in z direction).
Final Notes Need to understand what region at z = 1.3 m looks like in terms on interconnect between barrels and services to decide how to lock in z and protect stave during services installation…are interlinks the default??? With prototype II brackets and new baseplate we will measure profile of 1.3 m standard stave both warm and cold (have not done cold up till now) What else needs to be addressed? 15
