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's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

In August 2020 a derecho hit Duane Arnold head on causing a loss of offsite power lasting about 24 hours. Winds speeds exceeded 80 mph for over 20 minutes with peak speeds exceeding 100 mph. A complication was debris fouling of service water pump suction strainers requiring bypassing one of the strainers. This session will describe what happened to the plant, how the plant successfully dealt with the event including site preparations, response and what could have been improved. In addition, the session will explore the risk insights gained on both Duane Arnold and other plants.
