A thermal-hydraulic performance analysis of a model coil for a 40-T hybrid magnet superconducting outsert being built at the High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Chinese Academy of Sciences, was performed. The model coil was wound with a cable-in-conduit conductor cabled in a 316LN jacket cooled with supercritical helium. The model coil, in combination with 7.5-T NbTi solenoid coils, will be capable of generating a 12-T central field. Only one cooling channel was used to cool the model coil due to its short length. Both the temperature margin associated with a given scenario and the quench propagation following an artificial disturbance are discussed. The thermal-hydraulic analysis of the temperature margin showed that there is a sufficient minimum temperature margin for 100-A/s current ramp rate under a 7.5-T background magnetic field. The quench analysis showed that the hot-spot temperature of the cable is about 60 K, which is less than the maximum allowable value of 150 K for 0.7-s delay time. In addition, the convergence study was carried out for different time steps and space sizes.
