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.

Newest Russian icebreaker ready to hit the ice
The Arktika, Russia’s latest nuclear-powered icebreaker, sailed from the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg last week, bound for the Murmansk seaport. The voyage is scheduled to take approximately two weeks, during which time the vessel will be tested “in ice conditions,” according to Rosatom, Russia’s state-owned atomic energy corporation.

The online reactivity monitoring of accelerator-driven systems is a crucial issue in reactor control and monitoring. The area-ratio method is one of the techniques for measuring the reactivity of subcritical systems using a pulsed neutron source. This technique has been used to measure reactivity at different locations in the subcritical assembly BRAHMMA developed at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, India. Since the reactivity measured by the area-ratio method is spatially dependent on the detector location, the Bell-Glasstone correction factor was used to correct the measured reactivity.
