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.

In this panel session, each panelist will discuss their country-specific approach to post-closure criticality safety in view of the final geological disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. The discussion will include and reflect key topics presently being considered by the new international, waste management organization (WMO)-level collaboration initiative on post-closure criticality safety under the IGD-TP framework (https://igdtp.eu/). Each speaker will give a 10-minute summary with a Q&A afterwards.
