Common Coil Magnet System (Estimated cost savings by eliminating HEB)
2 TeV HEB Cost in SSC (derived):
Estimated for 5 TeV (5-50 TeV vlhc):
~$1,500 million (in 1990 US$)
Cost savings in equivalent 20xx $?
Based on 1990 cost in US$
(Derived based on certain assumptions)
A part of this saving (say ~20-30%) may be used towards two extra apertures, etc. in main tunnel. Estimated savings ~ $1 billion.
