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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

An overview is presented of the objectives, accomplishments, and potential future directions of the program on the evaluation methodology for proliferation resistance and physical protection (PR&PP) of advanced nuclear energy systems. The PR&PP Working Group of the Generation IV International Forum developed the methodology through a series of demonstration and case studies. The results of the evaluations performed with the methodology are intended for three types of users: system designers, program policy makers, and external stakeholders. During the past few years, various national and international groups have applied the methodology to nuclear energy system design as well as to developing approaches to advanced safeguards. We suggest some future applications of the methodology in this paper.
