In this study of the elastic stresses in thick, strip-wound magnet coils experimental data are compared with theoretical stresses based on three physical models. It is shown that the floating shall model predicts radial dependence of the circumferential stresses produced by the J x B body forces better than the monolithic disc or magnetic pressure models. The fundamental equations relating the magnetic body forces to the stresses in the conductors are derived from first principles. The instrumentation for measuring stresses within magnet windings is described. A survey of several recent magnet stress studies is included.
