In a superconducting magnet the null resistivity of the cable allows to run a very intense electrical current without dissipating heat. During operation, a region of the superconducting wire can turn to normal state (quench) with possible damage due to intense heat dissipation. Quench simulation is thus a necessary step during magnet design; it is a multi-physics computational problem that ends up very easily with tens of millions of equations in as many unknowns. In this paper we attempt an HPC approach for quench simulation.
