Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps this is terminology? Cut-away diagrams of a BWR showed four assemblies with each assembly consisting of what appeared to be 25 rods. Could there be a confusion between rods and pellets? Likewise, Arvid described 96 rods as comprising an assembly for a reactor. It is either terminology or I am misunderstanding something.
