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.

Hanford completes wastewater basin work to support tank waste treatment
Record-breaking heat and the vast size of the job did not stop the Department of Energy’s Office of River Protection and its tank operations contractor, Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS), from completing a construction project critical to the Hanford Site’s Direct-Feed Low-Activity Waste program for treating radioactive tank waste.

New plans for next-step experiments on a multiple-mirror confinement in GOL-3 are discussed. The proposed changes in the hardware configuration include separation of the existing GOL-3 device into two independent plasma facilities. The first device will continue research on physics of highly turbulent electron-beam-heated plasma. It will use the existing generator of the electron beam and a shortened part of the existing solenoid. The second device will be devoted to a new experimental program on studies of efficiency of multiple-mirror end sections that should decrease power and particle losses from the trap. Details of the physics and upgrade plans for the new device, tentatively named GOL-NB, are discussed.
