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.

Framatome, Ultra Safe partner to manufacture TRISO and FCM fuel
Framatome and Ultra Safe Nuclear announced on January 26 that they intend to form a joint venture to manufacture commercial quantities of tristructural isotropic (TRISO) particles and Ultra Safe’s proprietary fully ceramic microencapsulated (FCM) fuel.
The companies have signed a nonbinding agreement to integrate their resources to bring commercially viable, fourth-generation nuclear fuel to market for Ultra Safe’s micro-modular reactor (MMR) and other advanced reactor designs.

Targets experimented on the Laser Megajoule (LMJ) facility are composed of amorphous hydrogenated carbon capsules. Some of them present rippled surface features like sinusoidal functions. Other experimented targets are hohlraum-containing capsules. The main difficulty when analyzing the machined capsules is to characterize the feature’s orientation and the sinusoidal shape featured in the capsule thickness by laser machining. For the capsule enclosed by the hohlraum, the main challenge is to characterize the capsule centering inside the assembled hohlraum. X-ray tomography is used to realize measurement, and obtained results are presented in this paper.
