Main Question or Discussion Point

What's the significant difference between APWR and PWR in terms of core and nuclear fuel, I mean, if we want to calculate nuclear flux and burn up of APWR, can we use PWR data instead?

btw, anyone knows a site that provides AP1000 datasheet or specification?

The AP1000 uses a 14-ft (4.27 m) active fuel length, similar to that used by South Texas and EdF 1300 MWe plants. The fuel rods are more or less standard 17x17 fuel with 14-ft pellet stack.

One can find technical information on the NRC website in the Design Control Document, particularly sections 4.1 and 4.2.

For the AP1000, see

Items 134 - 139.
