Abstract

A known threat to the availability of the LHC is the interaction of macroparticles (dust particles) with the LHC proton beam. At the foreseen beam energy of 6.5 TeV during Run 2, quench margins in the superconducting magnets will be 2-3 times less, and beam losses due such interactions may result in magnet quenches. The study introduces an improved numerical model for such interactions, as well as Monte-Carlo simulations that give the probability of such events resulting in a beam-dump during Run 2.
