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.

The session will be available to join at 8:30AM (9:30AM EDT).
It’s been a long journey, but we are closer than ever before to deploying the next generation of advanced reactors. New, innovative designs with enhanced safety and improved economics, including small modular and micro reactors, should be under construction in only a few years. Speakers from across the new reactor community will address how we got here, what we’ve learned, and how we keep the momentum going to assure success.
