Magnetic field orientation dependence of critical current for industrial Nb3Sn strands
In usual superconducting devices such as magnets for NMR, the magnetic field is perpendicular to the superconducting strand axis. But in some special devices, such as magnets for the toroidal field system of fusion machines, the strand can experience any field orientation. For NbTi strands, the pinning force is dependent on the field orientation because of the drawing process.
