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 Sodium Reactor Experiment
In February 1957, construction was completed on the Sodium Reactor Experiment (SRE), a sodium-cooled, graphite-moderated reactor with an output of 20 MWt. The design of theSRE had begun three years earlier in 1954, and construction started in April 1955. On April 25, 1957, the reactor reached criticality, and the SRE operated until February 1964.
Advances in Nuclear Nonproliferation Technology and Policy Conference (ANTPC 2023)

The National Nuclear Security Administration's Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation initiated the Nonproliferation Stewardship Program (NSP) in 2020 to provide an enduring pipeline of nonproliferation subject matter experts to the DOE/NNSA laboratories. This program provides nonproliferation-relevant science & technology opportunities through modernized facility infrastructure. This session provides an overview of the NSP, highlights on-going efforts in uranium and plutonium processing and describes examples of hands-on experimental work and associated modeling and simulation.
