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.

Passing the Torch
Knoxville, TN|University of Tennessee at Knoxville
The ANS Student Conference will be held at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2023. We are excited to welcome students from around the country to our beautiful city and introduce them to the exciting events happening within the Department of Nuclear Engineering as well as in the surrounding area.
We have chosen the theme of “Passing the Torch” to pay homage to our University’s academic mascot, the Torchbearer. Living by this theme, we want the conference to be a symbol for continuing nuclear sciences from one generation to the next. Our intentions for all attendees of the conference are to reflect on the growth of the nuclear industry, along with thinking innovatively when hearing from those that came before to motivate nuclear scientists and engineers in progressing one step forward towards their individual aspirations.
Questions? For more information on the conference or how to get involved, please contact the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions, including research, internship projects, senior design projects, and nuclear-policy analysis, are invited. Authors are required to use the ANS template provided at ans.org/pubs/transactions/
