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.

Arkansas PSC rejects $142 million offer from Entergy in Grand Gulf dispute
While the Mississippi Public Service Commission earlier this year accepted a $300 million offer from Entergy Corporation to settle its portion of a multistate dispute with the utility over Grand Gulf nuclear plant customer rate impacts, the Arkansas Public Service Commission last week turned down its own $142 million offer, terming it “a low-ball amount.”

A set of optical model potential parameters for the n+51V reaction is obtained based on the experimental data of the total cross section, elastic scattering cross section, and elastic scattering angular distribution at incident energies up to 300 MeV. All cross sections, angular distributions, energy spectra, and double-differential cross sections for the n+51V reaction are consistently calculated and analyzed at incident neutron energies below 250 MeV. The theoretical nuclear models including the optical model, distorted wave Born approximation theory, Hauser-Feshbach theory, evaporation model, exciton model, and intranuclear cascade model are used in the analysis. The calculated results are compared with the experimental data and the evaluated results in ENDF/B-VII.1 and JENDL-4.
