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.

CP-1 at 80: The events of December 2, 1942
On the eve of the 80th anniversary of the first controlled nuclear chain reaction, Nuclear Newswire is back with the second of three prepared #ThrowbackThursday posts of CP-1 coverage from past issues of Nuclear News.
On November 17, we surveyed the events of 1942 leading up to the construction of Chicago Pile-1, an assemblage of graphite bricks and uranium “pseudospheres” used to achieve and control a self-sustaining fission reaction on December 2, 1942, inside a squash court at the University of Chicago’s Stagg Field.
Today we’ll pick up where we left off, as construction of CP-1 began on November 16, 1942.
Zachry Nuclear is a full service engineering firm that has been providing engineering, design, software development, and operations & maintenance (O&M) support services for electric utilities, advanced reactor designers, research organizations, regulators, Architect/Engineers, fuel vendors, and government energy agencies worldwide for over 45 years. Zachry Nuclear, and predecessors, Proto-Power Corporation (PPC), Numerical Applications, Inc. (NAI) and Computer Simulation & Analysis, Inc. (CSA), are internationally recognized for our expertise in thermal hydraulics analysis, radiological analysis, safety analysis and software development. We develop several industry standard analysis codes such as GOTHIC (coarse grid CFD), RETRAN-3D (system thermal-hydraulic and 3D neutron kinetics), VIPRE (subchannel), PROTO-FLO (piping analysis and design), PROTO-HX (heat exchanger performance), RADTRAD-NAI (dose and radiological consequences) and also develop custom software solutions. We specialize in applying these and other tools to provide significant cost savings for our clients through efficiency improvements, margin recapture, operations flexibility, and effective designs by developing innovative engineering solutions through automation, optimization, advanced modeling and simulation and machine learning methods. Our clients include existing plants and advanced reactor vendors supporting many of the SMR, non-LWR and microreactors currently being designed and developed both in the US and internationally.
