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 purpose of the High Flux Test Module (HFTM) in International Fusion Material Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) is to irradiate material specimens to a very high fluence (DEMO relevant ones) in a very few years. In IFMIF-EVEDA which is selected as one of the broader approach activities, the reference solution for the assemblies is a vertical set-up (EU); an alternative horizontal solution, H-HFTM (Japan), which could become very useful for very high temperature tests, is also part of this work. This paper presents the overview of H-HFTM and reports on the recent Japan activities for H-HFTM in the IFMIF-EVEDA framework.
