Europe/Berlin timezone
A meeting to discuss issues of engineering and integration for present and future tracking systems.

Topics include
  • Deflection, stability and precision of the structures, achieved and revisited requirements for the next generation
  • Choices of construction materials
  • Structural issues concerning humidity or outgassing
  • Tracker to beam-pipe interfaces, bakeout scenarios
  • Thermal expansion differences inside the detector
  • Vibration issues such as bond wire vibration (transport, operation)
  • Effects on mechanics during fast discharge of magnet coils
  • Radiation and mechanics: A discussion about the impacts of radiation on the design, materials and also issues like access constraints
  • Mass and therefore radiation lengths of mechanics, electronics and cooling
  • Mass and radiation lengths of cables and pipes
  • Service management: What strategies do we have to deal with services? How can we minimise installation and testing times?
  • Cooling issues inside tracker volume
  • Supply and return lines inside full detector volume
  • Pipe materials, pipe connection techniques and fittings
  • Humidity control, inside detector volume and along services
  • Gas flushing and gas cooling of tracking detectors
  • Rails for support and guidance
  • Alignment systems, requirements and "weak modes" of the system, in-situ adjustments, sensors including load sensors
  • Managment of transport loads
  • Failure management: What do we do to achieve a tracker with maximum duty cycle
  • Maintenance scenarios and the required special tooling
  • FEA and its comparison to real objects
