Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator based Sciences & Education (CLASSE) welcomes you to the Forum on Tracker Detector Mechanics 2019 held at Cornell University Ithaca campus.
The forum is a meeting to discuss issues of engineering and integration for present and future tracking systems.
- Detector cooling
- Deflection, stability and precision of the structures, achieved and revisited requirements for the next generation
- Thermal expansion differences inside the detector
- Mass and therefore radiation length of mechanics, cables and pipes
- Humidity control, including gas flushing inside detector volume and along services
- Structural issues concerning humidity or outgassing
- Choices of construction materials
- Rails for support and guidance
- Alignment systems, requirements and "weak modes" of the system, in-situ adjustments, sensors including load sensors
- Pipe materials, pipe connection techniques and fittings
- Shock and vibration issues such as bond wire vibration during transport and in operation
- Effects on mechanics during fast discharge of magnet coils
- Tracker to beam-pipe interfaces and bakeout scenarios
- Failure management: What do we do to achieve a tracker with maximum duty cycle
- Service management: What strategies do we have to deal with services? How can we minimise installation and testing times?
- Radiation and mechanics: A discussion about the impacts of radiation on the design, materials and also issues like access constraints
- Maintenance scenarios and the required special tooling
- FEA and its comparison to real objects
