Effects of tensile and compressive strain on critical currents (I c) of Nb3Al strand and cable-in-conduit (CIC) conductor were investigated using a newly developed apparatus. The Nb 3Al strand manufactured by jelly roll process was 0.74 mm in diameter with a copper/noncopper ratio of 4.05. The CIC conductor sample which consists of two Nb3Al strands and one copper wire inserted into a stainless steel conduit was prepared. The effective strain and magnetic field ranges for the CIC conductor sample were from -0.91% to +0.26% and from 6 T to 11 T, respectively. It is clearly shown that the Ic decrease of the CIC conductor sample by longitudinal strain is relieved considerably compared with the strand sample, indicating the relaxation of intrinsic strain in Nb3Al filaments in CIC conductor due to the cabling effect. The relaxation effect is about +0.1% for -0.8% in effective strain of CIC conductor
