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 neutron reaction data of 181Ta for the incident energy up to 200 MeV are urgently required for the study of nuclear reactor systems of fission or fusion. To meet this requirement, all cross sections, angular distributions, energy spectra, and double-differential cross sections for n + 180m,181Ta reactions are consistently calculated and analyzed at incident neutron energies up to 200 MeV. The theoretical results are compared with the experimental data and the evaluated results in ENDF/B-VIII, JENDL-4, and JEFF-3.
