The Magnetic Field around the Proton Beams in the LHC

How would one most appropriately model the magnetic field around each bunch of protons in the LHC at maximum operating speed? Is the assumption of a wire of the same length of the beams (~30cm) with ...

How much would the LHC beam be attenuated by the atmosphere?

As I understand it, the completed Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will ultimately have a proton beam with $2,808$ bunches of $1.15 \times 10^{11}$ protons each at $7$ TeV, giving a total beam energy of ...
