Using a newly developed computational code, a coupled thermo-electromagnetic analysis of type-II superconductor is performed to evaluate distributions of transport current and temperature in the conductor. Spread of current quenching due to artificial thermal spike and recovery from it are simulated by the code. The numerical results show hysteresis in the current distribution in the superconductor as a consequence of the thermal disturbance.
