The objective of Action 5 of PISC III is the experimental evaluation of the performance of test procedures and techniques in use for steam generator tubes in nuclear power plants during in-service inspection. The Blind Test Tubes of the Round Robin Test (RRT) were circulated to 29 participating organizations of 9 different countries. Data and capability of in-service inspection (ISI) techniques, which are evaluated in this paper, indicate that there was a wide dispersion of detection of sizing performance.
