Project summarySummary of the Objectives of the Project, the Technical Approach, and the Anticipated results.
In 1994 the decision on construction of the world largest collider, called LHC, in the international scientific center on highenergy physics ( CERN, Geneva) was adopted. Muon system is one of the most remarkable features of the ATLAS installation, developed for carrying out of research work on that collider by large international collaboration.
The research work, proposed to be carried out on the ATLAS/ LHC facility, is considered to be fundamental research, investigating the matter structure and behaviour of atomic particles.
The aim of the Project is to install and adapt 3D - CAD/CAE systems in design groups and 3D-CAD/ MESH systems in research groups for unification of design process in RFNC-VNIITF, JINR and CERN. During the Project work ( at its final stage) the design of one unit of Muon chamber will be detailly developed, with carrying out of finite element calculations. The Project is considered to be the first step in joint work on participation in the design of muon spectrometer for ATLAS/ LHC facility.
During the Project implementation about 35 persons will be partially perted from the activities associated with weapon improvement.
Potential Role of Foreign Collaborators.
CERN determines the structure of one units from ATLAS / LHC installation, that should be developed by RFNC-VNIITF and JINR specialists, presents technical request for proposal (RFP), approves design plans and specifications and trains RFNC-VNIITF designers in its departments.
