A commercial Finite-Element-Analysis program, ANSYS®, is widely used in structural and thermal analysis. With the program's ability to include nonlinear material properties and import complex CAD files, one can generate coil geometries and simulate quench propagation in superconducting magnets. A "proof-of-principle" finite element model was developed assuming a resistivity that increases linearly from zero to its normal value at a temperature consistent with the assumed B magnetic field. More sophisticated models could easily include finer-grained coil, cable, structural, and circuit details. A quench is provoked by raising the temperature of an arbitrary superconducting element above its T . The time response to this perturbation is calculated using small time-steps to allow convergence between steps. Snapshots of the temperature and voltage distributions allow examination of longitudinal and turn-to-turn quench propagation, quench-front annihilation, and cryo-stability. Modeling details are discussed, and a computed voltage history was compared with measurements from a recent magnet test. c
