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.

When deployments hit setbacks: Cautionary tales in Idaho and Alaska
Plans announced with fanfare sometimes falter in the face of competition or economics. Take NuScale Power’s plans for the Carbon Free Power Project in Idaho: The project was canceled in mid-November by NuScale and its first customer, Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems, after nearly a decade. The significance of that news depends on the observer. NuScale intends to focus on other sites and customers. Competitors may redouble efforts to tout their own designs and customer lists. Media found an opportunity to speculate about the future of advanced nuclear. And while many in the nuclear community believe the momentum in favor of new nuclear deployments is continuing—or even increasing as COP28 continues—others would caution against high hopes and point to the persistent obstacles of regulation, supply chain constraints, and financing costs.

The Rockwell Lifetime Achievement Award (also known as the Rockwell Award) is based on long-term or lifetime achievement in research, technology development, or education in the fields of radiation protection, shielding, or dosimetry. It is expected that most recipients will have been long-time active members of the Society. Moreover, most recipients will be authors of publications, who made significant contributions to the state of the art in the Radiation Protection and Shielding (RP&S) area.
This award will be awarded to an individual or group when working closely together and contribute equally to accomplishments. It is awarded no more than once a year. The award may be given posthumously.
This award consists of an engraved plaque and a monetary award of $500.
This award was established by the Radiation Protection and Shielding Division (RPSD) in November 1986 by presentation of the initial award to its namesake, Theodore Rockwell, III, on the 30th anniversary of the publication of his contribution titled The Radiation Shielding Design Manual.
Nominations should be sent to the Chair of the Honors and Awards Committee of the RPSD. The Executive Committee of the Division elects recipients by 80% positive vote of the members present at a regularly scheduled meeting.
Nominations must include the completed nomination form accompanied by the following supporting documents:
The Chair of the RPSD then notifies the recipient after their election by the Executive Committee. The Chair will have an announcement of the award prepared for ANS News. The award is presented by the Division Chair at a suitable occasion selected by the Executive Committee. The ANS Honors and Awards Committee is available for consultation and support as appropriate.
Nomination forms and supporting documents (in Word or Adobe Acrobat) should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
