    Abstract

    Thin-walled pressurized tubes have been developed for measurement of thermal creep and irradiation creep. Miniaturization of these tubes allows more tests to be conducted in the limited reactor space available and decreases the impact of displacement rate gradients and temperature gradients. Studies conducted on a variety of tube sizes show that, when specimen fabrication history and irradiation conditions are controlled, miniaturization can be successfully achieved and valid data produced.
