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.
Nuclear Installations Safety
Devoted specifically to the safety of nuclear installations and the health and safety of the public, this division seeks a better understanding of the role of safety in the design, construction and operation of nuclear installation facilities. The division also promotes engineering and scientific technology advancement associated with the safety of such facilities.

New polls show substantial support for nuclear energy
Sixty percent of respondents in a recent national survey favored the use of nuclear energy, with only 25 percent opposing its use. While the latest Bisconti Research poll focuses on nuclear power and electricity generation, its findings on public interest in climate change and using a spectrum of sources to meet energy needs are consistent with a recent Pew Research Center poll on a broad set of energy policy and climate change topics. The approaches the two online surveys took to measuring public opinion on nuclear energy yielded different numbers but found some common ground.

Li17-Pb83 eutectic is considered as one of the option for ITER test blanket and breeder blanket of DEMO reactor. Properties of Li-Pb eutectic define the conditions of its application and breeder blanket design and vice versa operating conditions affect to the properties of eutectic that resulted in structure and properties changes. The paper deals with the structure peculiarities, physical and mechanical properties investigation of Li-Pb eutectic.It was shown that Li-Pb eutectic may deviate from eutectic composition due to structure instability at some working conditions. Long term exposure at high temperature both in liquid and solid state resulted in non-homogeneity of microstructure of Li-Pb alloy.Temperature dependencies of physical and mechanical properties (under compression and tension) and structure stability issues of Li-Pb eutectic and near eutectic alloys were studied. These results are discussed in the paper.
