A quick summary is as follows. Two more heaters on the barrel have failed. The plan is to replace all the
heaters with dummy ones and add flexible extensions to take the pipes out into the empty TRT-C wheels
region, behind the endcaps. The heaters will be attached here at a later date. Due to schedule and contractual
constraints the endcap A toroid magnet must be installed no later than 08/06/07. This means that all work
on the flexiable extentions (including leak tight tests) must be complete by next Monday (21/05/07). If this is done
endcap A can be installed towards the end of May and endcap C in mid June. This is know as Plan B. If the work is not
complete by Monday morning. The endcaps will not be installed until September - October, this is Plan C.
c) Offline Monitoring:
Helen and Nick gave talks on the barrel MC and Endcap cosmic
data. See the attached talks.
d) Online Monitoring:
Sergey will have a meeting tomorrow with Pamela on ID monitoring and data
quality. See: Meeting
