Reliability in Harsh Environments

Reliability in Harsh Environments

  • Duane Newhart (Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory)


Environmental factors create many challenges for reliable operation of accelerators. Most accelerators operate over large physical areas and must maintain high precision and safe operations. Challenges that must be considered include many factors which are outside the direct control of the operator; such as varying temperatures, ground settling, earthquakes. Accelerators themselves produce radiation and temperatures from operation that impact equipment selection, precision and lifespan.
• Presenters are asked to share impacts on their systems from the harsh environments they operate in,
• How they address the issues
• Lessons learned.
