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.
2020 ANS Virtual Winter Meeting

NRC recommends over $7 million in R&D grants
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission announced on September 21 that based on a review of 141 research and development grant proposals, it anticipates awarding more than $7.25 million in funding to 15 of the peer-reviewed proposals. The funding is part of the $16 million appropriated by Congress in fiscal year 2020 under the Integrated University Program.
While independent NRC review panels recommended the 15 R&D proposals for funding, the NRC’s Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research will make a final decision on the awards.

Cross sections for (n,2n), (n,α), (n,p), and (n,t) reactions were measured on yttrium isotopes at neutron energies ranging from 13.5 to 14.8 MeV using the activation technique in combination with high-resolution gamma-ray spectroscopy. The monoenergetic neutron beam was produced via the 3H(d,n)4He reaction using solid T-Mo. Data are reported for the following reactions: 89Y(n,2n)88(m+g)Y, 89Y(n,α)86(m+g)Rb, 89Y(n,p)89Sr, and 89Y(n,t)87mSr. The cross sections were also estimated with the TALYS-1.8 nuclear model code using different level density options, at neutron energies varying from the reaction threshold to 20 MeV. Results are also discussed and compared to corresponding values found in the literature.
