Abstract:

Relationships relating power, magnetic field, current density, and ampere-turns in terms of certain dimensionless factors are summarized for many types of coil geometries and current distributions. A number of plots of these factors are presented. The field homogeneity in magnet structures is presented in terms of a series expansion about the origin utilizing Legendre Polynomials. A number of tables to facilitate design of homogeneous fields are presented. A method of achieving homogeneity in long solenoid structures by the use of determinants is discussed. Expressions for the axial field from uniform d radialy arying current density coils are given.
