The electromagnetic stress distribution inside a HTS insert is one of the key issues for construction of a high field high/low temperature superconductor (HTS/LTS) magnet. The rmiddotJmiddotB formulae is widely used for the stress calculation of the coil, due to its simplicity. However, the assumption of this calculation makes it impossible to consider the effects of the bobbin, an epoxy impregnated structure, on stress of the coil. In this work, stress analysis methods are reported. The governing equation defined from the force equilibrium state was adopted and used to analyze what the stress of the HTS coil wound with Bi2223/Ag conductor. The validness of the stress analysis method was confirmed by comparison with experimental results, especially in the coil with epoxy impregnation. The numerical and experimental procedures are described and both results are discussed.
