Studies of CT deformation at spacer locations, key to the development of FC deformation modelling, have been limited by the availability of gauging measurements from removed CTs. In , it was proposed that CT dimensional profiles could be generated using FC inspection data. Since then, the concept was investigated further by assessing: (1) the normalisation of gap measurements to the diameter of the spacer coil, (2) the validity of gap measurements from inspections of Point Lepreau and Gentilly-2, and the CT dimensional profiles generated from the inspection data. It was concluded, from the work presented in this paper, that the CT-PT gap data and the CT dimensional profiles generated using the data from the two subject inspections are reasonable.
