Title: Estimation of the errors of conductor positioning in the LHC main magnets for a given multipole content

Abstract

CERN is preparing for the construction of a new high energy collider, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This new facility is based on a double ring of high field superconducting magnets installed in the 26.7 km long LEP tunnel, above the LEP machine components. Several model magnets have been built in common development programs with industry. Their measured field distribution exhibits multipole components which are due to perturbations of the coil block arrangements in the manufacturing process. In order to reduce these random errors it is necessary to know where they come from, thus allowing to specify appropriate tolerances for the construction.
