The purpose of this project was to create a device that would allow the rendering of a 3-D model of cracks within a CANDU pressure tube. The designed device uses a waterproof laser and the CIGAR driving mechanism. The system was designed with the reactors at Darlington in mind, but it could be modified for other CANDU systems.
