SUBJECT:  SER FOR GEXL CORRELATION FOR 8x8R FUEL RELOAD APPLICATION PER THE 
          APPENDIX D SUBMITTALS OF THE GENERAL ELECTRIC TOPICAL REPORT,

          GENERIC LETTER - 81-13 

We have completed the review of the General Electric Company submittals 
regarding the application of the GEXL correlation to 8x8R fuel.  We have 
concluded that the GEXL correlation is acceptable for 8x8R fuel reload 
application and the Appendix D submittals of the General Electric Topical 
Report, NEDE-24011P-A, dated February 28, 1979 and December 14, 1979, are 
acceptable for incorporation into that document.  The General Electric 
Company has been informed of this matter by letter dated April 16, 1981. 

A safety evaluation describing the basis for our conclusions is enclosed for
your information. 

                              Sincerely,
