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.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

INL captures one dramatic second of a fuel rod test in slow motion
Idaho National Laboratory recently released footage of a new experiment at its Transient Reactor Test Facility (TREAT) that simulates what happens to a nuclear fuel pin when it starts to overheat. Go to Twitter for the original post, or cut to the chase and watch a 14-second clip on YouTube.
The Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors Virtual Meeting
Monday, November 16, 2020|2:40–4:50PM (3:40–5:50PM EST)

The unique partnerships built by CASL brought together a diverse team of talented individuals working in a collaborative environment across the national laboratories, academia and industry. The key to such collaboration is having a shared vision, a line of sight from each individual contributor and technical focus area towards common goals, and excellence in execution. There have been hundreds of contributors to the CASL program during the history of the hub who were brought together under a “one roof” virtual environment with the goal of providing tools and capabilities that have not only high value but high impact with respect to addressing the design and operational challenges of the current, as well as future, nuclear fleet. The CASL Partner’s Panel, representing the CASL core partners, brings together speakers from the DOE laboratories, academia and industry to discuss perspectives on science and applied research, software development and deployment, and impact on nuclear engineering education. In addition, DOE NE will provide a perspective on the transition of CASL and future of modeling and simulation for advanced nuclear energy.
