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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

Maintaining RIPB in commercial LWRs
The new standard ANSI/ANS-30.3-2022, Light Water Reactor Risk-Informed, Performance-Based Design, has just been issued by the American Nuclear Society. Approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) on July 21, 2022, the standard provides requirements for the incorporation of risk-informed, performance-based (RIPB) principles and methods into the nuclear safety design of commercial light water reactors. The process described in this standard establishes a minimum set of process requirements the designer must follow in order to meet the intent of this standard and appropriately combine deterministic, probabilistic, and performance-based methods during design development.

The Krell Institute, a 501(c)(3) corporation, manages three Ph.D. fellowships for the U.S. Department of Energy that provide payment of full tuition and required fees at any U.S. accredited university, a generous yearly stipend, an annual professional development allowance which can be used for academic needs as well, a research practicum at a national laboratory and more.
The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship is for students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields that use high-performance computing to solve problems in science, engineering, mathematics, and computer science.
The DOE CSGF program is open to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents that are senior undergraduates or students in their first year of doctoral study and is renewable for up to four years.
The Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship supports students pursuing their Ph.D. in areas of interest to stewardship science, such as properties of materials under extreme conditions and hydrodynamics, nuclear science, or high energy density physics.
The fellowship is open to U.S. citizens who are senior undergraduates or students in their first or second year of graduate study and is renewable for up to four years.
The Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Laboratory Residency Graduate Fellowship supports U.S. citizens in their second year or later pursuing a Ph.D. in fields of study that address complex science and engineering problems relevant to the stewardship of the nation’s nuclear stockpile.
DOE NNSA LRGF fellows will work and study in residence at one or more of four approved DOE NNSA facilities for a minimum of two 12-week periods. The fellowship is renewable for up to four years.
