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.

Former NRC chairs issue vaccine timeline recommendation to CDC
Five former chairmen of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission—Stephen Burns, Allison Macfarlane, Nils Diaz, Richard Meserve, and Dale Klein—signed a letter to José Romero, Arkansas health secretary and chair of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) immunization advisory committee, requesting that the advisory committee update its recommendation for COVID-19 vaccine allocation guidance for the energy workforce (including nuclear energy workers).
Currently, the CDC has four phases for the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. Those phases are numbered:
Technical Session|Sponsored by RPD

Joshua Hykes (Studsvik Scandpower)
Pavel V. Tsvetkov (TAMU)
Jay Bogardus (American Nuclear Society)
The focus of the presentations will be to share current core design capabilities, developments, and methods for addressing issues impacting core designs and associated reactor engineering support activities. Particular issues may include recent operating experiences, Accident Tolerant Fuel (ATF), load follow and alternative to load follow, high burnup/high enrichment in core design economics, and fuel and poison management economics.
