The ATLAS superconducting magnet system consists of a Barrel Toroid, two End-Cap Toroids and a Central Solenoid. The Barrel Toroid, with overall dimensions of 20-m diameter by 26-m length, is made of eight individual coils symmetrically assembled around the central axis with a warm structure. The system is presently under construction in industry. In order to verify the construction concepts a model coil B0, a 9-m short version of a single Barrel Toroid coil, was built. Since April 2001, an extensive test program is underway at CERN to characterize the mechanical, thermal, electrical and magnetic properties of the coil. The magnet successfully achieved the 20-kA nominal operating current in July 2001. The test program and the main results are reported.
