The PISC III Actions are intended to extend the results and methodologies of the previous PISC exercises, i.e. the validation of the capabilities of the various examination techniques when used on real defects, in real components, under real conditions of inspection. Being aware of the important safety role that steam generator tubes play as a barrier between primary and secondary cooling systems, and of the industrial problems that the degradation of these tubes can create, it was decided to organise a Steam Generator programme in three phases: - capability tests on loose tubes, - capability tests on transportable mock-ups, - reliability tests on fixed mock-ups including some interesting SURRY tubes.
