This thesis deals with various aspects in the construction of a 13 T Nb3Sn model accelerator dipole magnet. The basis for the successful construction of such a magnet is a thorough understanding of the sensitivity of the Nb3Sn conductor to stress and strain, and a detailed measurement of the stress and strain in the magnet windings.
