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.

U.S. reactor technologies to be featured at IAEA conference
A virtual side event at the 64th General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency will spotlight U.S. reactor technologies. The free event, US Reactor Technologies: Flexible Energy Security for Real-World Challenges, will be held this Thursday, September 24, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (EDT).
The event will highlight the capabilities of small modular reactors and other innovative reactors for addressing countries’ current needs. It will also examine anticipated challenges in the future, as well as underscore the need to act now.
The event is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy. Advanced registration is required.

Using either single H2 and D2 or H2-D2 mixed gases, the sorption abilities of CHA (chabazite)-type zeolites ion-exchanged with K, Na, or Ca were studied at 77, 201, and 250 K. The LTA (Linde Type A) (3A) and FAU (faujasite)-type zeolites were also examined for comparison. The pore diameters in these materials were found to decrease on the order of FAU > Ca-CHA > [K-CHA, Na-CHA, and LTA(3A)]. The quantities of D2 adsorbed on these zeolites were larger than the amounts of H2. At higher temperatures, the CHA-type zeolites having smaller pores exhibited superior D2/H2 selectivity compared with the LTA(3A) and FAU, suggesting that hydrogen isotope separation using zeolites is affected by pore size.
