Abstract The results of post-irradiation examinations of a pressure tube of fuel channel No. G-12 of KANUPP have been described. A detailed study was made in Canada by AECL. A parallel investigation on its seven rings of about 50 mm length each was also carried out at PINSTECH. Visual inspection showed normal oxidation effects. Gamma spectrometry showed the presence of 95Zr and 95Nb. Microstructural study revealed the characteristic alpha plus a transformed beta phase structure.
