This paper presents quench/recovery results, both experimental and simulation, of a 10-cm long YBCO test sample subjected to an over-current pulse. The sample was cooled by liquid nitrogen, either in a bath or forced through a narrow channel. Bath provides a better cooling than flow, at least for velocities of 3 and 5 cm/s used in the experiment.
