Magnetoelastic buckling is caused by mutual attractive forces from neighboring magnets. In this study, superconducting D-shape coils were made by winding superconducting NbTi wire and potting it in epoxy. Two three-coil partial torus experiments were carried out in a LHe bath and critical buckling currents were measured. The buckling analysis was carried out based on the principle of stationary potential energy. The critical currents obtained from the analysis agreed quite well with the experimental values. The method developed here could be extended to the analysis of the buckling in case of a full torus without difficulty.
