Abstract

The behavior of a cylinder/wire type superconductor subjected to an instantaneous thermal disturbance, characterized by a linear heat source of a finite length, is investigated. The mechanism of quenching and recovery of superconductivity is investigated by solving the transient two-dimensional heat conduction equation with or without volumetric heating, and fixed or moving boundary. A criterion with regard to different modes of behavior is developed.
