Future accelerator magnets are pushed to their limits in terms of magnetic field, mechanical strength and from the quench protection point of view. This forces the magnet designers to re-think the quench modelling. One issue that has not so far been largely explored is the mechanical behaviour of the superconducting coils during a quench. This can cause limitations to the design of high field accelerator magnets. This paper focuses on mechanical behavior in the event of a quench of a Nb3Sn 16 T dipole magnet currently developed in the framework of the EuroCirCol project in view of the Future Circular Collider conceptual design study. The thermo-mechanical analysis is performed through finite element modeling. The analysis takes into account the Lorentz force and the thermal stress due to the non-uniform temperature distribution in the winding during a quench.
