In the days following the incident which occurred in Sector 3-4 of the LHC, a Task Force was constituted by experts from the relevant LHC systems, with the mandate to establish the sequence of facts, based on experimental observations and measurements, to analyse and explain the development of events, in relation with design assumptions, manufacturing and test data and risk analyses performed, and to recommend preventive and corrective actions for Sector 3-4 and others. This is the report of the Task Force.
