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.

Penn State wants a Westinghouse eVinci microreactor on campus
Penn State University has announced plans to explore siting a Westinghouse Electric Company eVinci microreactor on its State College campus in central Pennsylvania. Under a memorandum of understanding to perform research and development work that could advance the future commercial deployment of eVinci, a team of researchers in Penn State’s Ken and Mary Alice Lindquist Department of Nuclear Engineering also plans to explore how eVinci could displace some fossil-fueled energy sources on campus.

Computation and simulation have a rich history in the nuclear enterprise. When combined with modern theory and informed by experimental data, virtual scientific exploration can lead to unparalleled technological advances. But while simulations can be predictive, they can also be dead wrong, leading to the potential for devastating errors in judgment. In this panel session we will explore some of the triumphs of computation and dissect those instances when overreliance on simulation has led us astray. With real-world examples, we will show how the nuclear professional community has been at the forefront of computation and how nuclear science remains at the cutting edge today by using high-performance computing, machine learning, and other methods.
