Stresses in a bulk high-temperature superconductor with resin impregnation are numerically evaluated during the magnetization process by field cooling. Shielding current distributions are obtained through a macroscopic numerical simulation with the Maxwell equations and the critical state model. The stress distributions are obtained through numerical analysis with the finite-element method. The stress distributions of the resin impregnation model are evaluated for the fixed boundary condition of the bulk HTS. The maximum stresses are obtained on the boundary of the resin-impregnated region.
