Additional information
To run the model, open helix.pro with Gmsh.
The model uses an Hformulation and the Gmsh cohomology solver ^{[1]}^{[2]}. The nonlinear resistivity $\rho=\frac{E_c}{J_c}(\frac{\\vec{J}\}{J_c})^{n1}$ in the superconducting filaments is linearized as in ^{[3]}. The number and layers of superconducting filaments, the twist pitch as well as the radius of the conducting matrix are parametrizable, and the model can be solved both in 2D and in 3D.
