Phase 2 Design and Engineering Meetings

Mandate    -    Membership    -    Meetings    -    Minutes

Mandate: Design and engineering meetings for the LHC Phase II Collimators (CDM2) are held every two weeks and are coordinated by MME group of TS department.

Starting from the review and implementation of  technical specifications and requirements as discussed in the Phase II Specification Meetings, Design and Engineering Meetings are mainly focused on the following issues:

  • Research and characterization on novel materials.
  • Mechanical engineering including studies of innovative design solution, thermal and mechanical calculations, accident case simulations etc.
  • Engineering tests including measurements of thermal, physical, electrical and mechanical properties; thermal tests; assessment of compatibility with ultra-high vacuum.
  • Technological tests, e.g.: surface coatings, welding, brazing, heat treatments, machining, outgassing, metrology, etc.
  • Manufacturing, assembly and laboratory tests of collimator prototypes.
  • Support and analysis of radiation tests of materials


Meetings: Held every two weeks
Each Thursday following Specification Meeting

14h30 - 15h30
