2015-09-01 Survey

Present:

Tony Millington (ISIS Survey Team)
Jason Tarrant (MICE Integration Engineer)
Chris Rogers (MICE Physics coordinator)

Meeting to discuss recent survey results and comparison with John Palin survey; January 9th 2015

  • Datums of new survey fits with datums of John Palin survey to ~0.5 mm
    • (Datums are wall mounted permanent survey points)
  • ISIS surveyors have defined a new coordinate system, defined by
    • Line through quad centres. This was found by constructing a jig that fits in quad bore, with survey probe mounted; and surveying the jig in each of the quad centres; and finding a line through the centres (good to ~0.5 mm)
    • Brass plate under D2
    • Uniquely defines x-z plane; defines y axis
    • Consistent with ISIS tooling height
    • Nearly the same as John Palin survey; correct to ~ cms
    • Closer to Colin Croxford survey (2006)
  • Jason Tarrant noted that we need resurvey of TOF1 and EMR
  • Rogers described the survey procedure
  • Rogers requested document that would describe a procedure enabling a new surveyor to rebuild the coordinate system a priori (i.e. describing jig method)
  • Rogers requests, for new surveys
    • Description of how the survey was done
    • Description of survey points
  • See also
Edit to add:
  • Rogers received survey report on 13th January, some long email chain reproduced below but in short...
    • z-axis is defined by vector with direction given by gravity, as defined by the Laser tracker inclination sensor, and intersecting the M1 point under the dipoles
    • x-axis is defined by vector that intersects the z-axis and the centre of Q9 and is perpendicular to the z-axis; Q9 centre defined by the positioning jig
    • y-axis is defined as the perpendicular to these two
  • Rogers requested revised survey report to clarify these points.
