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.

Indiana Senate bill will have state consider SMRs
A new bill in the Indiana state Senate creates guidelines for state regulators to consider small modular reactors should utilities want to build them. Senate Bill 271 was sponsored by Sen. Eric Koch (R., Bedford), chair of the Senate Utilities Committee, and Sen. Blake Doriot (R., Goshen). Supporters of the bill said that SMRs could replace retiring coal plants and would supplement renewables.
The Indy Star reported on January 24 that the utilities committee passed the bill by a vote of eight to two and that it now heads to the full Senate.

Smooth solid DT layer inside a plastic spherical shell are needed in order to achieve the ignition on the Laser MegaJoule (LMJ) facility. This paper follows our previous one1 and presents the up to date results concerning the quenching and breathing techniques. New analysis software has been made which allowed us to update the results already obtained for the breathing technique. New experiments done on quenching have leaded to obtain a smooth layer for the higher mode down to 2.3 K below the triple point. The time where the roughness NIF specifications are obtained while the temperature is 1,5 K below the triple point is around 6 seconds using the quenching technique. Roughness analyses are made on one axis view. We also discuss other experimental aspects, such as shadowgraphy and redistribution process.
