Superfluid helium is primarily used in the field of applied superconductivity. Given the complexity of the magnet geometry and the scales involved, a real 3D simulation of heat transfer in such devices at the micro-channel scale is very difficult, even impossible. However, the repeatability or even periodicity of the structure suggests the possibility of a macro-scale description following a porous medium approach. Which macro-scale model may be used? This largely remains an open field while some answers have been proposed based on experimental or theoretical work.
