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 Department of Nuclear Engineering at North Carolina State University has spent the 2020–2021 academic year celebrating the 70th anniversary of its becoming the first U.S. university to establish a nuclear engineering curriculum. It started in 1950, when Clifford Beck, then of Oak Ridge, Tenn., obtained support from NC State’s dean of engineering, Harold Lampe, to build the nation’s first university nuclear reactor and, in conjunction, establish an educational curriculum dedicated to nuclear engineering.
The department, host to the 2021 ANS Virtual Student Conference, scheduled for April 8–10, now features 23 tenure/tenure-track faculty and three research faculty members. “What a journey for the first nuclear engineering curriculum in the nation,” said Kostadin Ivanov, professor and department head.

The Engineering Design and Engineering Validation Activities (EVEDA) of IFMIF, the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility, are started as one of three projects of the Broader Approach Agreement as the collaborative works between Japan and Europe, in June 2007.The main objective of the project is deliver the detailed, complete, and fully integrated engineering design the IFMIF. The designs of key subsystems are validated by executing prototyping or mockup studies. The main outcomes one year after the start of the project are: the design of the prototype accelerator of low-energy part up to 9 MeV with 125 mA continuous wave deuteron beam was updated and optimized to employ the superconducting resonators as the main linac; the purification methods for controlling the erosion/corrosion and radioactive products in the flowing lithium used as the neutron producing target material were examined under the laboratory-scale; and the concept of the irradiation test modules was elaborated further by conducting thermo-mechanical and hydraulic analyses.
