For a thin coil section of a solenoidal magnet, the relationship between the reduction in axial stress and the reduction in tangential stress for a given quantity of lumped reinforcement is determine. The axial and radial stress distribution in a coil of a high field magnet is computed and related to the performance of the Nb3Sn conductor in the coil.
