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.

The legacy of the Shippingport Atomic Power Station
Serving as the world’s first scalable nuclear power plant, Shippingport Atomic Power Station led the way for today’s nuclear generation fleet. Shippingport was centrally located roughly 25 miles from Pittsburgh, Pa., to provide electrical generation for many end-users. Shippingport also served as an experimental reactor that allowed engineers and designers the ability to test different core designs, and as such, the site housed additional testing equipment otherwise not commonly seen. The primary goal of Shippingport was always to generate electricity; however, its ability to function as an experimental reactor served utilities in further development of scalable nuclear generation.

The 2023 ANS Winter Meeting promises to be one of the year’s most exciting and informative educational and networking events for attendees from every facet of nuclear science and technology. If you’re interested in expanding your knowledge, sharing ideas, and networking, don’t miss this opportunity. Please join us at the 2023 ANS Winter Meeting.
In addition, the Technology Expo will give attendees a glimpse into the applications of new technology through three days of exhibits and special events. The Expo will also give attendees many opportunities to network with each other and establish new professional relationships while having food and fun in a friendly and informal setting.
Over a quarter of our audience has decision-making and buying power (CNO, COO, VP and Senior level staff). These powerful decision-makers control huge budgets and attend the Winter Meeting with serious purchasing intent, looking for new technology solutions and practical innovations that best fit their operations’ needs.
Is your organization looking to bring on new talent with fresh ideas and energy? Thirty two percent of our audience are students and young members, just finishing college or looking for their first opportunity in the industry. Make your presence known to graduates from some of the top universities in the world.
