Abstract : The general layout and design of a relatively inexpensive system to produce magnetic fields in the 200 and 300 koer region is described. The magnets are solenoids wound from high purity aluminum in a regionalized, stress-reduced configuration. Detailed stress analysis indicates that the solenoids can be built so that the stress in the conductor need not rise above the yield strength of the aluminum. A typical mechanical configuration of a solenoid is described. The coils are cooled by compressed helium gas at about 17K. The nature of the cooling load determines the mode of operation of the magnets, and the size of the associated cryogenic equipment. (Author)
