ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
The division provides a forum for focused technical dialogue on thermal hydraulic technology in the nuclear industry. Specifically, this will include heat transfer and fluid mechanics involved in the utilization of nuclear energy. It is intended to attract the highest quality of theoretical and experimental work to ANS, including research on basic phenomena and application to nuclear system design.

New Spanish Communications Subcommittee seeks volunteers
The newly created Spanish Communications Subcommittee (SCS) of the ANS Diversity and Inclusion Committee needs translators, transcribers, and original content developers. Already the group has attracted interested members from all over the world, including Argentina, Spain, Chile, Mexico, and the United States.
As an ANS member, you have the power to make a difference. Exercise it by completing the volunteer form.
These committees have been established to pursue the aims of the Society. Committee members are appointed by the ANS president, with the exception of the Nominating Committee which is appointed by the Board of Directors.
From time to time, or as the need arises, the president will establish special committees with specific terms to examine Society or industry-wide issues.
Professional Divisions of the American Nuclear Society can also play an important role in ANS governance.
ANS Economic Imperative Student Design Project: "The Economic Imperative: From Building to Manufacturing"
The ANS Board of Directors has approved the launch of a nationwide student design project, aimed at using mass production technology to achieve the economic imperative.
Mass production designs need to be pre-licensed. Production engineers can then take these into the factories, and fabricate large modules that can be assembled quickly on site. Mass production lines could produce a steam generator a day; a pressure vessel per week. We do not need new reactor concepts or new fuel cycles. This will use innovation, change and transition to use existing technology to produce competitive products.
In addition, innovative designs will undoubtedly emerge from a fresh look at water-cooled reactor technology by young engineers already steeped in computerized design, instrumentation and control, from large high technology industries such as aerospace.
